Exploring the Haines Highway
Km 114.9: Mule Creek airstrip, elevation 2,900 feet (884 m). Through the 1960s, Canada had an extensive resource access program that built roads and airfields in extremely remote areas in the hope that they would spur resource development. The airfields, which were all built to allow aircraft right up to DC3s to use them, are now maintained by the highways departments - this airstrip is one of those. The gravel runway is 4,000 feet long (1,219 m).
