Backcountry Hut: Part 2 - No room for error on this Alaskan ridgeline MTB trail

The first option in the dictionary for the word adventure is “an exciting or very unusual experience.” While the experience that is adventure varies far and wide from person to person, Eric Porter and Kevin Murphy’s recent travels in Alaska hit that definition on the nose.

After spotting a backcountry hut in an Alaskan guidebook, Porter began making plans to find the epic location the only way he knows how — by bicycle. The challenge? Located in the middle of nowhere, the trails to get to the remote hut have been growing over for years. “It’s like everything is trying to hurt you,” Porter explain. “It’s just miles of pushing and dragging your bike.”

After spending a night at the hut Eric Porter set out to conquer a very exposed and technical Alaskan ridgeline aptly named “The Last Frontier”
