See the ratings for this list. Rate This Bookmark List

The Fairbanks caching community is active and growing rapidly with more than 100 caches (up from less than 30 in 2004) within a 30 mile radius. This is a list of caches in the immediate Fairbanks area that we classify as "drive-up" caches. Our definition of "drive-up" is that a cacher can park within 1/2 mile of the cache and walk to it without getting muddy. We built separate lists for North Pole and roads leading out of Fairbanks.
