Tombstone Territorial Park
Some of the most spectacular views in the Yukon are to be found in this new park which is in the traditional territory of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in. You don't even have to hike in to see them, you can drive right past on the Dempster Highway. The Tombstone range has been referred to as the Patagonia of the Northern Hemisphere and is home to a range of flora and fauna that's found nowhere else in North America.
Tombstone Territorial Park protects over 2,000 square kilometres in the south Ogilvie Mountains. The park's boundaries were announced in December of 1999. A result of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in Final Agreement, Tombstone Park was established to protect the life, landforms and heritage of this subarctic wilderness.
Tombstone Park is a place where people can step into the natural world and experience the awesome beauty of a northern mountain wilderness. Hikers and photographers are attracted by tundra walking with dramatic views, unusual landforms and craggy peaks. Wildlife viewers are rewarded by the diversity of species including large mammals and a unique array of birds.
