The Hutlinana Hot Springs is one of many natural springs located all around Alaska. Located approximately 128 miles Northwest of Fairbanks is the trail head that leads to the hot spring. Based on my apple watch, mobile travelers, and other hikers, the trail is roughly 6.5 miles. It took us two weekends to find the actual trail. If you drove past the 129th mile marker then you’ve gone too far. Below is a drawn sketch from a friend for all of you to use. The entrance of the trail is narrow so it could be pretty hard to see from the road.
The trail has some hills here and there. Some parts of the trail where muddy and mossy. It is suggested to bring plenty of water as you will be no where near the creek until you reach the location. We did end up running into a couple runoffs to gather a little water. I highly suggest bringing a really good pair of shoes that will support the ankle.
