Mt. Lorne mapThe Hamlet of Mt. Lorne extends from just south of the junction of the Alaska and Klondike Highways to south of Bear Creek, and down the Annie Lake Road to the Wheaton River bridge. It covers an area of 245 square kilometres with a population of 437 people.

The Mt. Lorne area has a rich history. Carcross/Tagish and Kwanlin Dun First Nations people have a long tradition of hunting and gathering in this region. In 1992, an archaeological dig at Annie Lake discovered remains of campsites dating back over 8000 years.

Easy access to trails in the Watson and Wheaton river valleys has made the area popular to hikers and other back-country enthusiasts and tales of big snow have made Mt. Lorne a favoured area for mushers training for the Yukon Quest and Iditarod.
