Who has information on how much time it takes to get to Deadhorse from Fairbanks? General data is fine, just gauging how slow/fast the trek is.
Well it has been done in 6 hours 45 min (one way). Two long days, one up one back, is done by some, but most folks take two days up and two days back.
2 days up and two days back is kind of a relaxed pace. It allows for lodging options at Coldfoot/Wiesman coming and going and Deadhorse.
I did a 3 day run, reaching Galbraith Lake to camp the first night, back to Coldfoot the second. That was a longish day, but not too strenuous for an oldish phart like me. The north slope weather forecast dictated my plan as snow was expected above 2500 feet the second night. Atigun pass is 4700'.
Details in my r/r about Day 33 I think.
