From the Eielson Visitor Center, you can hike down to the Gorge Creek and Thorofare River Bars. To the end of the maintained trail and back is about 2 miles, and takes the average hiker about 90 minutes. Beyond the end of the trail, you can continue off-trail and reach backcountry camping units within the park. Note that a creek crossing may be required if you continue off-trail.
