Kennicott Shuttle is a great way to gain access to the Kennecott/McCarthy region without risking damage to your vehicle on the infamous McCarthy Road. The local-resident drivers share their insight to the region as you traverse. I suggest spending at least one night in either...More

We didn't plan ahead well on our visit and arrived to the parking area about 2 pm. There is no driving into McCarthy or Kennicott so the shuttle is required if you don't want to walk or ride bikes. I wanted to walk into McCarthy...More

This shuttle system is vital to get between the parking area and the two cities. However the last one is at 630 so it limits your activities and ability to eat dinner about town depending on where you stay. But overall a good program.
