Braeburn

Population - ?

Braeburn Lodge is a roadhouse on the Klondike Highway about an hour's drive north of Whitehorse. It is located east of Braeburn Lake and north of Braeburn Mountain, on the path of the former Dawson Overland Trail, which was built in 1902 between Whitehorse and Dawson City.

The lodge itself is a tourist destination and is famous for its large cinnamon buns. The airestrip across the highway is named for the lodge's cinnamon buns - Cinnamon Bun Airport. (Pilots are warned to be careful of the gopher holes on the airstrip.)
