To come to this point, travel from Dawson in Canada, best starting your trip in Whitehorse.

Concerning this village/ bordercrossing believe what it says: Population 2... the two persons guarding the border.

The next tiny village in the US (Chicken) is about 65 km away, a long drive on the gravel road with the grand name "top of the world" highway (at about 1400 m altitude).

Mind you, Dawson Dawson, Yukon, Canada in Canada is only a short distance from Poker Creek by road and crossing the Yukon by ferry Dawson, Yukon, Canada .
