Becker Peak is just passed Tally-Ho and Mount Anderson on the Annie Lake Road. It is in a little mountain complex with Carbon Hill and Mount Bell. The route, like many hikes in this area, is via old mining roads. This road is in much better shape than some of the others in the area and can be partially driven or mountain biked/e-biked to cut off some of the time and distance. From up high on the ridge the views are stunning to the southwest of Mount Crozier and even as far as Radelet Peak near the BC border. Keep an eye for caribou in this area. Note this hike takes you to a more dramatic sub-peak of Becker Peak with great views. The true summit is a more rounded peak, another 1.3 km to the east.

This is a challenging hike in the beautiful Annie Lake Region, along a formidable ridgeline to the summit. There is over 1,200 m elevation gain so this hike is rated as difficult, but the views are amazing along the way of the Annie Lake Region. NOTE: The area falls within Category A Settlement Lands of both the Kwanlin Dun First Nation and Carcross Tagish First Nation. Please respect their rules and land. Please avoid this area between April 1-June 16 due to the sheep lambing season.

The Mount Skukum area is a Yukon hiker's playground! There are endless opportunities for exploring, everything is easily accessible via old exploration mining roads, and the views are rewarding from every angle. Mount Skukum (2,377 m) itself is an impressive volcanic rock complex, and the peak would require rock climbing gear. The hike described here is to a lower peak.

This mountain is located directly east of Tally-Ho Mountain with some amazing views over the southern portion of the Wheaton River and the extent of Gray Ridge. The route is straightforward following old exploration roads that take you nearly to the top of the mountain. Be warned though, this hike is quite a bit farther than Tally-Ho Mountain, and well worth it if you can tackle a portion of the route by bike or ATV. Alternatively you could tackle this hike as a 2 day trip, camping in the alpine. NOTE: This hike falls within Category A Settlement Lands of the Carcross Tagish First Nation. Please respect their rules and land.

This route is a great challenge. It has it all - steep hiking, bushwhacking, nearly 1,000 m elevation gain, wildflowers, ridge walking, towering rocky pillars, and amazing views. The route is up the north end of what is known as Grey Ridge, a series of peaks stretching along Annie Lake and the Wheaton River (Needle Mountain, Mount Gilliam, Surprise Mountain, Pyramid Mountain and Mount Gray).
Please avoid hiking this trail from April 1st to June 16th to avoid disturbing the sheep during lambing season.

Red Ridge is a great ridge hike offering several options and fantastic views. The ridge is between other formidable mountains like Twin Mountain and Mount Perkins. Annie Lake can be seen from the top and the ridge follows along the beautiful Watson River Valley. The trailhead is located up a 4x4 road which can be impassable at certain times (high water, downed trees, etc).

While on top of Tally-Ho mountain, you get a fantastic view down the Wheaton River Valley. The ridge around the summit is completely open alpine which makes exploring easy. It is also prime habitat for caribou, which can often be seen near the summit. The route follows an ATV trail for a lot of the way.
NOTE: This hike falls within Category A Settlement Lands of the Carcross Tagish First Nation. Please respect their rules and land.
