This is a trail with access to Copper Lake. Copper Lake has opportunities for Lake Trout, Grayling, and Burbot fishing. The first 2.5 miles are suitable for hiking, then the trail crossses Tanada Creek, which can be high and fast, and trail conditions deteriorate.
This is a great site to take a break for some wildlife viewing or bird watching. There are views of wetlands, a small lake, and boreal forest. Moose are often seen here and caribou migrate through this area in the spring and fall. During spring and summer, look for nesting ducks and trumpeter swans.
At mile 14.5 McCarthy Road, turn left on the access road and follow it 2.5 miles to Nugget Creek and Dixie Pass trailheads. These remote trails offer visitors the chance to explore the wilderness and embark on an adventure they will never forget!
Ask a park ranger for more information and trail descriptions.
This small cabin sleeps two and provides a base camp from which to explore game trails and ridgelines with excellent views of Mount Wrangell, Mount Sanford and Tanada peaks. It’s located at the end of 3-mile Caribou Creek Trail, which is sometimes accessible by recreational ATV (check with National Park Service first), as well as snow machines when there’s at least 6 inches of snow on the ground. As with other public use cabins in this area, you must pack everything in and out
This is now called the Kendesnii Campground. This is now a developed campground with 10 sites, with picnic tables, fire rings, trails, and restrooms.
