    Fairbanks Areas

    The Colorado Creek Trail begins at the Tolovana River Bridge at milepost 57 on the Elliott Highway. It follows the Duncan Creek drainage eastward approximately 13 trail miles to the boundary of the White Mountains National Recreation Area. This part of the trail goesthrough areas of open meadows, mixed with spruce and birch trees.From the trailhead (612 feet elevation), the trail climbs gently for about tenmiles, increasing insteepness for the next three miles to a point where it breaks out on top of the ridgeline (1,625 feet). This is an old burn area that overlooks a large, open meadow with the Beaver Creek drainage and the White Mountains visible in the distance. This is a good spot to cut firewood for the cabin. After another mile the trail connects with the Big Bend Trail leading 1/2 mile to theColorado Creek Cabin.

    Fairbanks China River

    Wickersham Creek Trail

    The Wickersham Creek Trail begins near Wickersham Dome at milepost 28 on the Elliott Highway. The trail is along a hill eastward for two miles to it's junction with the Ski Loop Trail. The trail follows on forested ridgeline another 3.5 miles past a high rocky peak (2,545 feet) before meeting the old "Winter Trail". This rocky peak offers good views of the Alaska Range and the White Mountains. One mile farther down the trail is the junction with the Trail Creek Trail which goes past Lee's Cabin (.75 miles), crosses Beaver Creek and on to the Cache Mountain Cabin. From this trail junction, the Wickersham Creek Trail drops steeply for 2.5 miles before it crosses Wickersham Creek. The trail goes through wooded areas of black spruce and meadows for another three miles before reaching the Wickersham Creek Trail Shelter and the Moose Creek Trail junction.

    White Mountains

    Some areas in the White Mountains National Recreation Area are open to the use of motorized vehicles. In general, motor vehicles weighing less than 1,500 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) and a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of less than 1,500 lbs. can be operated on lands along the southern and western boundaries. Portions of the Wickersham Creek Trail, the Beaver Creek National Wild River corridor, and the lands beyond the corridor are closed to summer use of motorized vehicles. There are also three Research Natural Areas and several hiking trails that are closed year-round to motorized use. See BLM's Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) management map to find areas open to the operation of OHVs.

    Contact BLM for more information on the use of OHVs in the White Mountains National Recreation Area.
