Full description

Take off from Anchorage on a guided walk through nature. Enjoy an easy hike, learn about Alaska’s vegetation and animal populations, and see one of the Chugach State Park’s most photogenic alpine valleys.

You’ll start by meandering through hemlock forests scarred by thrashing leeward winds from the Turnagain Arm. Snowshoe hares make their homes here, attracting the rare lynx living in the area. In June, wild geraniums, bluebells, and forget-me-nots pop up.

Spot blissful blueberries, funky fungi, and changing colors that tell us when summer is coming to a close. Every season is a wealth of surprising encounters. No matter when you take your hike, you’ll get to see something memorable.

The flora and fauna of the Glen Alps will tell you the story of an ecosystem living in harmony just outside of Anchorage. Moose and bear birth their young in spring and mate during the fall months.

Many animals travel through the mountains and valley in search of their favorite feed, providing ample opportunity for wildlife viewing and photography.
