Hiking in the Interior - Fairbanks AreaAlaska Hiking and Travel Guide
Hiking and adventure in the Alaska interior – the interior actually encompasses a huge area wilderness, the majority of which is uninhabited. Technically, it stretches from the Alaska Range to the Brooks Range. The land area of this one region of Alaska is roughly 190,000 square miles (about 35,000 miles larger than the state of California). There are only a few roads that access this entire region. Most areas listed in this guide are within 100 miles of Fairbanks, Alaska (starting south of the Dalton Highway). This guide mostly includes areas within the Fairbanks North Star Borough, Southeast Fairbanks Census Area, and the Denali Borough.
Expect a second interior guide for the majority of the Yukon-Koyukuk Borough, although there may be a bit of overlap.
