Winner Creek Trail

OutAndBack • 5 mi • 400 ft

If you’d like a break from the hill climbs and high tundra typical of Chugach State Park, head to the Winner Creek Trail. Here, in the perpetual twilight of the boreal rain forest, a gentle trail winds through hulking, moss-coated spruce trees on the way to Winner Creek Gorge—a dramatic, churning cauldron of glacial meltwater. Though at times muddy and slippery, the trail is suitable for hikers of all abilities.
