The village of Deering is located at the mouth of the Inmachuk River, north of Bering Land Bridge National Preserve. Two airlines have regularly scheduled passenger service to this village of over 120 people. An approximately 20 mile long each way backpacking route leads south from the village and into the preserve. The first part of the route follows an atv path, while the second part is hiking in open tundra. Both sections follow the Inmachuk River and require route finding skills.
