I was looking at places I haven't been and the Wrangell St. Elias area is a place that has always been high on the list. As far as I'm aware the McCarthey road and Nabesna road are the only ways to access the area.
However, I am aware that both roads can be difficult at times. Has anyone ever driven either the McCarthey road or Nabesna road? What was you're expereince? I'd like to try it in late June or July.
I have a friend up there willing to loan me a Bronco and since it's not mine I figure I owe it to him to do my research before I go up there. If you only recommend taking a borrowed car part of the way down the road and hiking from there, how far in can you get before the going gets tough? If the first 1/2 is relatively easy going, I wouldn't be opposed to parking 1/2 way down and hiking in from there.
It looks like there are areas along the road that are not part of the National park so I believe that those areas would be fair game for hunting too????
