Sign Post Forest at Watson Lake, Yukon Territory

Leave Your Mark

As you enter Yukon Territory, don’t miss the chance to represent your roots by taking part in the time-honored tradition known as Sign Post Forest. The ritual originates to the earliest days of the highway’s construction after a homesick American soldier posted his hometown sign of Danville, Illinois. Today, the forest boasts an estimated 72,000 signs, all from travelers journeying along the highway. Don’t worry if you arrive with no sign post of your own, as you can make one at the Yukon Visitor Information Center to officially leave your mark.
