    You can run the ROW, just have to get a permit from Alyeska. Just stop by any pump station security check point or in Fairbanks and fill out a form I think.

    There may be a few spots that are not already trapped, but I can't imagine where that would be. I know the Elliot is hit pretty hard. Where one guys stops another starts.
    But, it is always worth a look see. If you get out, good luck finding some fur. If nothing else, you may find some new cool areas to go play in at some other date.

    I guess the hard part would be getting the machine way up there on top of the pipe, but I guess once you were up there, go for it... sorry, someone had to say something....

    Check out the other thread responses (http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...-road-corridor) regarding snowmachines within the 5-mile corridor along the haul road. I know you posted that thread as well, but thought I would post the link in case others had a similar question. Looks to be the answer is NO to snowmachines for anything other than transporting people from outside the corridor across to another area outside the corridor. They can not be used inside the corridor for anything, trapping included.

    It's easy to get the machine up on the pipeline, just find a spot that's buried and then drive up the pipeline. Of course, staying on the pipe is tricky and getting off again can be tough too.
