This century-old log-cabin village, the only authentic 'town' on the Dalton Hwy, occupies an enviable spot, overhung by peaks and fronting the Middle Fork of the Koyukuk River. Its heyday was 1910, when it replaced the original Coldfoot as a hub for area gold miners. Today, this pretty settlement is the genuine frontier deal – a scattering of cabins, many with 'No Trespassing' signs, and decorated with antlers and deer skulls.
