Hiking

Summit Trail. The BLM maintains the moderately difficult 20-mile Summit Trail, from the Elliott Highway, near Wickersham Dome, north into the White Mountains National Recreation Area. This nonmotorized trail can be explored as a day hike or in an overnight backpacking trip. It quickly rises into alpine country with 360-degree vistas that include abundant wildflowers and bird-watching in summer, blueberry picking in fall. This is not a loop trail, but ends at Beaver Creek—so you'll need to leave vehicles at both ends of arrange a ride back. Bring water, as sometimes the sources are scarce, and take advantage of the rest shelter at Mile 8. You'll find the parking lot at Mile 28. AK.
