Mountain sights in Nome
- Sort by:
The climb up 1062ft Anvil Mountain is the closest hike to Nome and the only one that can be easily pulled off without a car. Follow the Teller Hwy 3.5 miles from town to Glacier Creek Rd, which takes you directly onto the mountain. After the road veers left, look for a smooth route up the slope and commence your climb. It's about one mile round-trip to the summit, ascending through wonderful wildflower patches.
At the top you'll find the giant parabolic antennae of the Cold War-era White Alice Communications System, plus great views of town and the ocean as well as the Kigluaik Mountains farther inland.
