The Pinnell Mountain National Recreation Trail is probably the best known Interior trail outside of the region. The trek is entirely above tree line and offers sweeping views of the White Mountain and Steese National Conservation. 

The trail is rugged and remote. The remarkable wildlife and ancient rocks (some of the oldest exposed in Alaska) add to the area’s feeling of wilderness. Caribou from the Fortymile Herd are often seen in this area, so keep watch for them. The trek, part of the National Recreation Trail system, is not to be missed.
