Taking ATVs in Alaska

Has anyone addressed the use of ATVs in Alaska or taken their ATVs along with them. We travel with ours quite a bit and would like to know if there are ample areas for their use and do we have only designated trails to ride on. I looked up the Alaska ATV Regulation requirements and they are very reasonable. Just wondering if we would benefit by taking them or not. I didn't look up the requirements for Canada and for that matter if they are frowned upon there we would just leave them in the toyhauler until we find where they could be used.

Recreational use of ATV's in Alberta has been shut down due to fire hazard , the area needs weeks of rain to get the fires under control. This is a temporary measure , what I can't tell you is what kind of license (ing) for the ATV or the rider required in AB. I've seen AB ATVs with plates .

While I am not sure about hauling ATV's to Alaska, there are LOTS of places to ride up here. Very few restrictions other then having them registered, for riding in some areas. ATV's are the 'main' mode of transportation in a lot of the areas in Alaska. If you do bring ATV's up here, stop in different places to get good information on trail conditions.
OP, what type/style of ATV's are you thinking about bring to Alaska? Not all of the types that are ridden in the lower 48 work well up here.

Thank you "twogypsies" I think that information convinced me to bring my ATVs along when we go to Alaska in 2018.

When we did our '11 Alaska trip, the areas around the campgrounds in Canada and Alaska had very few trails that we could 'Jeep' on. Most trails turned out to be 'Native' lands and were chained a few hundred feet off the main road. Quite a few of the off roads open to travel, signs prohibiting ATVs were numerous. We were kind of bummed because getting off road is the main reason we dragged the Jeep around.
