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.
