    Default Middle Fork Trail info

    Looking for information on the Middle Fork Trail off mile 169.5 of the Richardson Highway. How far west does this trail go? River crossings? Can you cross by atv? Lots of traffic? Muddy? Fun? Any info would be appreciated.

    The fish lake trail is not exactly a summer route. Specially the river crossing and the rest of the trail along the north side. Just because a map shows a trail doesn't mean it can be travelled year round. With all the land swapping going on the different agencies have been GPSing and documenting all the easements and 'legal' trails. For example BLM had a couple guys just ride around for a few years doing only this. So be careful in your hunt planning and make sure a line on a map is actually feasable for summer use.

    The trail near Miers lake is doable in late fall. Summer the river and mud could be a little deep.

    Question Miers lake trail

    Jkb
    Have you taken it all the way to where Swede Lake trail crosses the middle fork or to Dickey Lake during the summer? is it doable on a dry year with the wife and kids? or is it mud and winch all the way

    The farthest I went we could see the swede lake area from the highlands. There was mud on the first couple miles of the trail but after you cross the gulkana it's a good trail. It's a beautiful area have fun. Pm me if you have more questions.
