    Default Kennecott

    I was wondering if anyone had any info on the hike from McCarthy to Kennecott. How steep? Is it Bikeable? Also anyinfo about camping along the McCarthy Rd would be helpful.

    Just about 5 miles to the mine town from McArthy. Slight hill. It is a road. Was there a couple months ago. Very much bike-able.

    For ten bucks you can take a shuttle to Kennicott and back to McCarthy.

    you can definitely bike the road which is the old railroad grade so its pretty easy. Beside the road is the old wagon trail and that's a nice hike or bike ride as well. So you could make a loop out of it, go up one and down the other.
