    sheep Mountain lodge to eureka. Intel needed.

    Has anyone done this ride? I've heard the trail is in great shape but I have no idea what to expect. I rode out there in summer one time but the trails I found went straight up into the mountains to the north and were really steep. I am assuming this trail must parallel the highway to eureka???

    I'm thinking of doing it Wednesday.

    I looked into doing some winter riding out there last year. While I haven't ridden it personally you can get some good Intel by calling the lodges up there. Also a good site to check out with weather and maps around Alaska can be found here. Alaska Backcountry Cross Country Skiing Web Site

    Check out his trips and you can get a ton of great ideas and how the trails are.

    The squaw creek trail had snow machine traffic for 5 miles then the sleds turned around that's as of two weeks ago. Where the sleds turned around there was no base and the snow was sugar.

    Around Gunsight there was plenty of machine traffic going down different trails. But there is quote a bit of climbing. The first quarter mile up to where the machines split off is crap though after that the trails look to smooth out. I was on foot with my dog not on a bike for that though

    Thanks. I ended adventuring closer to home. Rode from settlers bay out to flat lake via trail 7 (herning trail). 17 miles one way and a great ride.
