Escape to the peaceful White Mountain Recreation Area for a day of hiking and exploring. Follow an experienced guide on the Wickersham Dome Trail and behold the natural beauty and wildlife along the journey. Travel at your own speed to make the most of every moment.
Start the day with convenient pickup from your hotel and head north of Fairbanks to the White Mountains. While the extensive recreation area has over 200 miles of trails to choose from, your helpful guide leads you to the renowned Wickersham Dome Trail.
You hike the gradual path, enjoying the greenery, with hopes of spotting an animal in its natural habitat, such as a moose, owl, hawk, or hare. During the late summer and fall months you can enjoy meadows full of wildflowers, and maybe even pick some delicious berries along the trail. Make your way to the namesake, Wickersham Dome, for the best unobstructed view of the serene boreal forest and rolling hills.
Take advantage of the wonderful photography opportunities to capture the memories before returning to your hotel.
