Need to Know
PACK RAFTERS and hikers of the Summit Trail!! Take note, the Summit Trail has really grown in on the last 3 miles of its junction with the Wickersham Trail. This section of trail can be extremely difficult to follow because it has grown in with willows and alders. We are working on getting this fixed, but it may take awhile. For more information please call the BLM at (907)474-2200.
Recreation: Borealis-LeFevre Cabin offers skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, river floating, hiking and wildlife viewing all within the vicinity of the cabin. This cabin is not accessible by all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in the summer (May 1-October 14).

Borealis-LeFevre Cabin is a summer and winter use cabin. It offers various recreation opportunities -- from river floating and hiking in the summer to snowmobiling in the winter as well as rustic wilderness lodging, scenery and relaxation within the White Mountains National Recreation Area. The cabin is primitive with no electricity, no indoor plumbing and no cell phone coverage. The cabin is located on a low bluff on the north side of Beaver Creek Wild and Scenic River, approximately four miles upstream from "Big Bend," a prominent landmark along the river. The Borealis Cabin can be reached via the Wickersham Creek Trail (20 miles of winter trail), the Summit Trail (20 miles of summer hiking trail), or by floating Beaver Creek. Beaver Creek can be crossed by foot except during freeze-up before the ice is stable, during break-up and during periods of high water.
Directions: The most direct route from the city of Fairbanks, Alaska, is to travel north on the Steese Highway to Fox, Alaska, then north on the Elliott Highway to milepost 28 and the Wickersham Dome parking area. The trails to the cabin begins at the Wickersham Dome parking area, then one can travel either the Wickersham Creek Trail (winter use) or the Summit Trail (summer use, hiking only).
