Valdez Creek ATV Ride 6/30 to 7/4

#1 Post by dryer »

Upcoming Valdez Creek trail ride information.
This ride is scheduled for June 30 to July 4th. You may stay the whole time, or come and depart, whatever works best for you. To get there, expect about a four hour drive from Fairbanks. Drive to Cantwell, then turn on the Denali Hwy. Drive til you get to the Susitna River bridge and cross over it. Shortly after you cross the river (0.5Miles) there is a road that takes off to the left. This is the Valdez Creek Mine road. This road is rough in places but a two wheel drive vehicle can make it. About one mile on this road, you will cross a creek. It is fast moving but usually not very deep. About mile 3, you will come to a washed out area with many rocks. Take it slow. Our camp will be up this road about 5 miles from the Denali Hwy and to the left side. It is an open area that is above the tree line so the bugs are not too bad. I will try to post some FST signs.
The riding is excellent with miles of trails to explore. Some trails are in valleys and others are on mountain ridges. Our group did this ride two years ago and it was beautiful with the high mountains and alpine lakes. There is some active gold mining so we will try and avoid those areas.
If you have some, please bring firewood.
