|Bridge at Recreational Area in Petersville
Petersville Recreational Mining area is a great place to do some Panning, Sluicing and Dredging(with permit). It is in the Foothills of Denali, a very beautiful place. The Road to Petersville Mining area can be treacherous at times so be aware that you may have to turn around due to snow,mud and/or washouts. I would not recommend taking a trailer up the road, it is one lane and you don’t know when you might have to back up a mile or two. The road drops off immediately into a canyon on one sided and a rock wall on the other so no hugging the shoulders. I have added a map of the Recreational area and a link to the States information on the site. This is a good area and you can find fairly good gold here, If anything it is a beautiful trip and alot of fun.
