    So a big question seems to be "where should we go wheeling?" I like to compile stuff in one place so why not make a thread for it? I will update the OP as we get info in the thread so everything is easy to find. I will probably also eventually make a map of it in google maps and link it in here :D I have been all over the internet looking for trails in AK and am slowly starting to turn some stuff up.

    disclaimer: use this info at your own risk! Do your own research and do not use this as your sole resource for planning your trip.

    Soooo if you know of some sweet trails or places to wheel, post em up! Please put

    1) name
    2) nearest town/city/general area in AK
    3) Difficulty/what kinds of mods you recommend
    4) any access restrictions you know if
    5) notes on the trail

    You can add the Eska Falls Road in Sutton. It looks like it's more of an ATV trail, but I've never been all the way up it so I don't really know. It is very narrow, so expect some pin striping. I went up it the summer I bought my truck and was getting dirty looks by guys going down in ATVs. Couldn't tell if they were mad that I was going up it, or surprised that a beat up Subaru was following me haha.

    Here's a video of a guy riding is dirtbike up it. Looks amazing.

    And some info on the trail.
