Your Hikes

» South Fork Valley Trail, Chugach SP This 9.6-mile out-and-back threads through a broad river valley to two backcountry lakes teeming with trout and views of 6,000-foot peaks. Miles from city center 20; Trip ID765511

» Crow Pass Trail, Chugach SP Cut through the Chugach Mountains in a day on this 24-miler filled with glaciers, waterfalls, and rivers. “You’re likely to see black bear and moose, and, if you’re really lucky, a wolverine or lynx,” says club president Wayne Todd. Prefer to camp? Set up north of Crow Pass for spectacular morning views of Mt. Yukla. Miles from city center 45; Trip ID393658
