Access to the western trails in Chugach State Park is gained from the hillside of east Anchorage. Four major trailheads access the assortment of trails called the Hillside Trail System, ranging from easy, wide old roadbeds to more difficult routes requiring mountaineering skills.
Trail highlights include excellent alpine scenery and lakes, wildflowers, wildlife, fall berry picking, and outstanding views of Anchorage, the Alaska Range, and Cook Inlet. This area of the park has something for everyone.
