Mountain Biking

The Kennicott area is great for Alaska mountain biking – there are plenty of old mining roads to explore, with little or no traffic. The roads can be rocky with uneven surfaces, so mountain bikes are recommended. There is usually a place to rent bikes in McCarthy, or you can bring your own. Trail maps are available at our Front Desk.

For a shorter ride, try mountain biking on the historic 5 mile road between Kennicott and McCarthy. You can either ride on the main road which the vehicles use or on the historic Wagon Road which parallels the main road. The Wagon Road is narrow and bumpy in some places but it is a great place for a bike ride.
