Wrangell-St. Elias Visitor Center to close for the winter on Nov. 1st.
Wrangell-St. Elias's main visitor center, located near Copper Center, AK, will be closed for the winter starting November 1. The visitor center will re-open on April 1, 2015.
Mountain biking opportunities are limited in Wrangell-St. Elias. Lack of maintained roads and rough, boggy conditions make riding difficult.
Suggested routes along the McCarthy Road include the Kotsina Road and the Nugget Creek Trail. From McCarthy one can also ride on dirt roads to the historic town of Kennecott and to the Nizina River.
Dry creek beds along the Nabesna Road that may be suitable for mountain biking include Lost Creek and Trail Creek. There are also a number of trails in the Glennallen, Copper Center-Chitina area that you might also enjoy.
Go to our Hiking Routes page to find our more about these trails and routes.
