A colorful, close-knit, end-of-the-road type place, this town was a trading center for placer miners who worked the nearby creeks. Most of the community joins in the fun of events like the Spring Carnival and the Crafter’s Guild Bazaar. If you travel here over land, take a moment to reflect that year-round access to Manley Hot Springs only became available in 1982, when the state began plowing the Elliott Highway in winter.
