Northern Woods and Water Route

My wife and I want to use the NW&WR on a bike trip from Alaska to Florida. Any input about heavy truck traffic on the route?

Northern Woods & Water Highway

There is a 50 km section around Grassland that would have heavy truck traffic with oil, gas and logging trucks converging in this area. There are a few pockets of heavier truck traffic localized with oil field activity or a lumber mill; these sections are usually quite short. The NWW Highway generally meanders through sparsely populated areas. You may encounter more wildlife than heavy trucks in some areas. The Highway covers 2500 km from Winnipeg to Dawson Creek. The terrain and forest can change drastically every 50 to 100 km. It's this variety that makes the Highway an enjoyable way to travel - small friendly communities, lighter traffic, and variety.
