Did the Liard trail north/east bound in 2010. Great ride. Didn't see any signs of human habitation for hours on end except the gravel road. The character of the road changes without warning, so don't make my mistake of running too fast on the hardpack then suddenly finding yourself in 6 inches of new gravel - yee haw ! Camped on the side of the road in one of the little water re-supply turnouts, packed up and pulled back onto the road next morning and found myself 10 meters away from mama bear and 3 cubs. Another yee-haw. Fortunately she must have already had breakfast and was in a good mood. Lots of Bison as well. Have a great ride - carry plenty of fuel.
