    Eureka is so much fun. I can't wait to take the wheelers up there this year. Is that Arctic Cat a 500cc? And is that a custom wagon?

      The wagon looks like a metal horse trough on a trailer. When you get through getting where you are going just fill with water and it's a bathtub. Take it off the trailer instant boat.

        Eureka is alot of fun. Boulder, Hatchers, Eska
        We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

          nope it is a 650 trv and yes the trailer is custom built by a neighbor of mine
          and i also have the ski kit for it to go behind my snow machine

          and yes i set the ski backwards when i took the picture and the wife and i both are waiting patiently to get to eureka for the early ride i might make it a camping trip this year instead of a day ride

            Nope no pics of eske side but I do have a ton of pics from the King's River trail system and Boulder. Eureka should always be a weekend trip. Everywhere me n the woman go we pack the ranger for the weekend and go as far as we can. Only a few trails from Willow to Eureka that we didnt run last summer.

              Hey Happy

              What is the earliest you have been in Eureka with a wheeler? and what kind of trail conditions should be expected? I know going during a rain soaked weekend makes for quite a bit of excitement.

                  I like Eska and Kings River. Eska can be a lot of trouble, which is part of the fun.

                    is a real nice road ride the sign reads no motorized vehicles beyond this point so im assuming it was the edge of denli state park

                    i never did see what had this moose spooked but she wasted no time getting out and back in the woods and you guys could post a picture if you have them always coo to see other peoples place on a trip

                      looks like

                      more people are thinking about riding now so thought i would bounce this back to the top to see if any one has more ride ideas to share
                      got me a book last night called Alaska wilderness trails i see a few in there
                      like off the Denali that look good for later

                        Going with Eureka for the weekend trip

                        and I think Boulder for the day trip (but today is Wednesday so the day trip choice may change
                        There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.:eek:

                          does that book include atv trails?

                            Eureka is our favorite weekend trip also, take the rv up and stay in one of the gravel pits. We also want to do a camping trip one weekend as well.

                              Pinochle/Hicks Trail

                              We attempted to do a different trail every weekend last season and I think my favorite was the Pinochle/Hicks trail. We ran the trail about a week after moose hunting season and the ground had some ice on it which was greatly appreciated as there was some serious mud before going down the big hill to Hicks Creek. The 2" - 3" of ice made getting through the muddy stretch much easier than if we would have gone through a couple weeks earlier.

                              For you moose hunters...we got up on a knoll and looked down and spotted over 50 moose. You had large bulls with their herems and smaller bulls around the perimeter wishing they could get in on some of that female action. Not a cloud in the sky, the falls colors and all those moose - it reminds me of why I love this State.

                              I'm looking forward to doing the trail again this fall and have hopes of going in on the Pinochle/Hicks trail and coming out on Purinton Trail. Has anyone done this loop? If so, did you do it in a one day excursion or take it easy and do it in two days?
