Musings of a northern walker

Whitehorse is a great place to walk but it's not always obvious where trails are. I try to list maps, walking events, ideas for walks, natural history resources, etc. The site is also about building a walking culture, ways for making walking better: trails, bridges and boardwalks; a walking point of view in consultations; fiscal fairness for walking. Additionally, I highlight interesting things that others are doing, such as stewardship and healthy walking initiatives, some could easily be adapted here.

If you're just visiting or maybe you just moved here or you're new to recreational walking, see Welcome to Whitehorse. My Yukon Walking Strategy looks beyond Whitehorse and shows how we could become a more walkable territory and the Yukon could become a walking tourism destination.


Dec. 25, 2014. Meanwhile Get Walking Week, which is the Ramblers annual festival of short walks in England and Scotland will be taking a break for 2015. This is to allow us to put all our efforts behind an exciting new project to mark Ramblers' 80th Anniversary. We will be recruiting 100,000 people to walk, and survey, every right of way in England and Wales, and produce a ground-breaking report on the entire footpath network. Our groups will play a vital role in helping to make this happen, and we look forward to sharing more details with you in the coming months. PHEW! What an organization!!!

Nov. 6, 2014. From a fellow Bluemoon hiker: "The City of Whitehorse Community and Recreation Services is currently preparing a report on the use of motorized vehicles on the Millennium Trail, specifically Rotary bridge. Their report, with recommendations, is likely to go to Mayor and Council in about two weeks.

I feel strongly that all of the Millennium Trail should be off-limits to snowmobiles and ATVs. If you feel similarly, please send an email to Linda Rapp, Director of Parks and Recreation and to Mayor and Council. Points you may wish to raise:

Thanks! [If you send an email, please bcc yukonbluemoon@gmail.com.]"

Their facebook page. This seems a good place to bring up This is yet another place to tell why a pedestrian bridge to the hospital makes so much sense.

Nov. 3, 2014. Traffic light synergy an elusive dream in Toronto. Interesting read with our government looking at widening major roads such as the Alaska Highway through urban neighbourhoods and Mountainview Drive between Yukon College and Range Point (the old Range Road North area): "Pedestrians: Engineers once assumed that people would walk at a minimum of 1.3 metres/second, about 4.7 kilometres per hour. But as society ages, the industry standard has dropped to 1 metre/second, 3.6 kilometres per hour. The difference means that minimum signal times – designed to ensure pedestrians can cross safely – have had to be increased. The effect is greatest on wide streets but also noticeable where a major road intersects with a small cross street. With the quieter street given 33 per cent more time, traffic on the busier street must wait longer."

As boomers age, walkable cities become more important. Makes me think that making Whitehorse walkable is even more important:

"I asked ... if the automobile DNA of cities like Phoenix and Tampa doomed them to fail simple tests, like whether you could walk to the grocery store...."The population is aging. The average length of time that people [live] after they give up driving is, for men, seven years, and for women it's 10."

Health tip: find purpose in life: "He proposed that people live longer when they have a greater will to live; that a person might actively cultivate purpose—carefully distinguished from pursuing happiness—as a tenet of physical health." It would seem I use walking as a purpose in life. I think my focus om walking culture is actually a pretty neat purpose! There is room for others to be part of this in case they are looking for a challenging project.

Nov 2, 2014. from an ad: Many runners believe that wearing white or bright colours at night helps them stand out, but a study done by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services revealed that people wearing white are seen at 180 feet but cars need 260 feet to stop at 60mph. Wearing reflective material makes a runner visible at 500 feet. True? Have to look into this. Luckily I walk trails in the daytime.

Commuting is even worse than you thought. This article talks about balancing commuting, physical activity and time. In Whitehorse, we're so spread out that walking or biking to work is difficult, especially in other than summer days. By promoting recreational walking, this can become an after-supper family activity — remember, it's likely that many of our kids also are commuters. Our city needs to have a range of good well-marked walking trails in every neighbourhood. Another way of adding physical activity to a work day is going for a noontime walk. This is yet another reason why a pedestrian bridge to the hospital makes so much sense.

Oct. 28, 2014. For snowy/icy trail walking, ice grips are indispensable, especially with spring's icy hilly trail sections. We use these Lee Valley ones all winter/spring...they work well.

Also this fall we've been trying out new poles: Pacerpoles. They work well but we haven't tried with snow or on snowshoes... stay tuned.

Take a Walk: When I want to get the creative juices flowing on our team, we go for a walk. We call these "walkies," where we go for 15 minutes and talk about life.

I find that being healthy and alert will always boost up the creative side in people as well. —John Rampton, Adogy

"Considered in a global context, Canada is a developed country, but it might be fair to say Canada is overdeveloped when it comes to its physical activity infrastructure and programs for children and youth,” says Jennifer Cowie Bonne, CEO, Active Healthy Kids Canada. “Canada will never reap the benefits of our well developed policies, programs and places unless we relax our grasp and give our kids room to move. Parents and families, policymakers, schools and community leaders must work together to make it easier for our kids to make the active choice, more often.” CBC article

Imagine if the money being spent on widening the Robert Cambell Bridge so bicyclists might be encouraged to stop driving cars downtown was to have been spent on a Main Street pedestrian bridge!

March 4, 2014. I've finally started a Walking, as a learning experience page. Very much a skeleton piece for now but it shows some possibilities. More to come on this.

The Walking, as a community page has been rebuilt. Still needs work, but it's closer to showing the opportunities we have to build walking into our community's administrative structure.

February 25, 2014. I continue to wonder why we are able to contemplate twinning the Alaska Highway and Mountainview Drive, yet the idea of people crossing them on foot is so complicated. We have big city solutions to small city problems. The following paragraph sadly seems bang on for our future. Range Road planning is unable to contemplate people crossing Mountainview Drive except at the intersection of Range Road. I shake my head! Transportation is Destiny: Design for Happy People, Not Happy Cars

100 years ago, auto makers, home builders, and oil companies ("the Sprawl Lobby") started realizing that they could make lots of money by creating what has since become a self-perpetuating vicious cycle in communities. If communities could be convinced to ease the flow of car traffic by building enormous highways and parking lots (and subsidizing car travel by having everyone—not just motorists—pay for such roads, parking, and gasoline), huge amounts of money could be made selling cars, homes and gasoline. The process eventually was feeding on itself in a growing, self-perpetuating way, because the highways, parking and subsidies were forcing and otherwise encouraging a growing number of Americans to buy more and more cars, use more and more gasoline, and buy sprawling homes that were further and further from the town center. Why? Because the subsidized highways and gasoline were powerfully promoting community dispersal, high speeds, isolation, and an insatiable demand for larger highways and parking lots. Each of these factors were toxic to a city, led to government and household financial difficulties, destroyed in-town quality of life (which added to the desire to live in sprawl locations), and made travel by transit, bicycle or walking increasingly difficult and unlikely (an added inducement to buy more cars).

February 11, 2014. When asked to prove that bike lanes are needed somewhere, remember it's hard to justify a bridge by the number of people swimming across a river. Makes me think of walking trails that need major road crossings, or other places that walking improvements are needed.

Why we don't walk anymore. Now here's an interesting project: New York City Walk. One more: Cul-de-sac hell and the radius of demand; look at places like Copper Ridge and think of walking through the area easily, then look at the plans for Whistle Bend. Are we designing a cul-de-sac hell or are we catching on to modern design? What do you think? I'll put some links here to morrow to help answer the question.

January 22. After discussion about how far people on Range Road would walk, I thought I'd start to make a Range Road neighbourhood walking map. I've also put it on my Range Road trails page. A big problem is whether the mountainview crossing by Northland can be done. If Mountainview is twinned and divided, crossings are much simpler. An automatic island in the middle!

January 17, 2014. Neighbourhood use of City trails at WCCSC. I've been looking at the trails that the city has been building for the past few years in the Mount McIntyre area. In a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the City has given control to the ski club over winter use of the trails. The MOU hasn't been made public yet. They've done a preliminary look at what the public would be allowed to use.

I have a couple of suggestions to make it fairer for above-the-airport neighbourhoods specifically, and the public in general. It would also simplify the club's administration of our trails. Their plan is to look at this winter's activities and get input from those concerned and discuss it in in the spring.

Here's my backgrounder:
Mount McIntyre Recreation Area, above-the-airport walking and snowshoeing trails

January 16, 2014. Whistle Bend Trails. Just submitted my walker's look at Whistle Bend for YESAB and sent the note below to various governments and others:

Today, I submitted the attached PDF to the Whistle Bend YESAB process as a walker's views.

You may be familiar with walking around Whistle Bend, but if not, I've included lots of pictures so reading it won't take long!

My YESAB submission seems quite timely. I seemed to have addressed walking in a way that addressed 5 topics, so it seemed to be worth my effort in preparing this overview:

  • For YESAB, I looked at Whistle Bend subdivision's social/environmental effects on the land surrounding the subdivision.
  • It builds on the piece I submitted for Council's Marwell–Downtown town hall meeting last week around a Yukon River Corridor Trail.
  • It is a good backgrounder for City Planning's Range Road North Neighbourhood meetings next week, also around the corridor trail.
  • It is timely input as public input on the 2014 Operating budget.
  • It also addresses the difficult topic of motorized recreation and neighbourhoods.

From my YESAB submission " Public money is always tight when looking at luxuries. Bridges, trails, staircases are not the first items in a city's budget, rather they're the first to go in the budget. And yet, if we think community health, they should be right up there with roads and sewers. YESAB should consider whether these costs should be borne by future residents, or should be project development costs."

I'm under no illusions that YESAB will make radical changes in its Whistle Bend subdivision evaluation, but that won't make the topic go away!

January 10, 2014. Greenspace, trails dominate Whistle Bend concerns. Interesting meeting. I learned a lot. YESAB seems to draw a thick black line around a project and if it's outside the line and not an engineered thing — road, power, sewage, water — then it is outside the scope at this point. It should matter that Whistle Bend is surrounded by a little greenspace (~400m) or a golf course, cliffs and the Yukon River.

Over the next days I'll prepare a walker's look at Whistle Bend, somewhat like the A walker's look at downtown–Marwell, or the Range Road trails. Maybe I can get YESAB to look harder at this? Should the FP (Future Planning)-zoned land be designated Recreational as it was shown earlier in the project?
