Overview

On your ATV you will visit the historic remote 1959 Devore family homestead with Dennis Devore, an original family member. Learn how these hardy pioneers survived the harsh conditions of Alaskan homesteading. You can drive your own ATV or ride a comfortable ATV-drawn covered wagon as the homestead is accessible only by trail. Guests may try gold panning on the homestead quarter at Wiggle Creek. Lunch is included. Photo opportunities of Mt. McKinley.
