Chena Dome Trail, Alaska

Just added the Chena Dome Trail to our list of best hikes in the world.

Chena Dome is a very challenging 3-4 day adventure, 29.5mi (47.5km) loop mostly on ridgetop above the treeline.

It’s famed for great views and tasty berries in August. Finding water can be a problem late in the season.

About 50mi from Fairbanks, Alaska, this hike can be combined with a visit to Denali (Mt. McKinley), the highest mountain in North America.

I’m considering a trip to Alaska for summer 2007.

I started my research with Lonely Planet Alaska

Lonely Planet Alaska.

Next I’ll need Lonely Planet Hiking in Alaska (Lonely Planet Walking Guides). I always start with Lonely Planet when planning a trip.
