    Elliott highway - Rampart trail?

    Does anyone out here know about a connection between the Elliott highway and Rampart? is there any trail at all? is it a snowmachine superhighway? is there enough glimmer of trail to make a good bike ride, or would it be postholing at -40 for hours on end? (the Elliott highway is the one that splits west from the haul road and ends at Manley Hot Springs.)

    thanks

    After a fun trip into Hutliana Hot Springs spring of 03, I thought about a trip to Ramparts. Once over the Eureka Dome the trail (according to the Alaska Gazetteer) follows Minook Creek all the way to Rampart. The trail on top of Eureka Dome would probably be blown over but it looks like well less than 10 miles over that section. The worst could only be a couple of miles. The Minook Creek section could be great or it could be lots of overflow or a combination. You could try and contact someone in Ramparts and ask about the trail. Regardless if the trail is bad you could always bail and bike into Hutliana Hot Springs. They are undeveloped and it's a nice 8 mile or so bike in. It get regular traffic so should be passable by bike. I had no problem with SnoCats.

    If you find out more about the trail please post it. t

    Call Dick

    Dylan,

    Call Dick Griffith for possible answer. He's skied on the Yukon to Rampart and may have more info, but for sure he has friends all over who may know.

    He's in the phone book.

    Good Luck

    Pat
