A turquoise beauty, Ptarmigan Lake reflects the mountains that surround it. Two trails lead from the highway to magnificent views across forested mountain slopes and join shortly before the lake. A 4-mile extension of the trail, with views of hanging glaciers across the water, continues around the lake to its east end. The trailheads are a mile apart, making a car shuttle easy for those who wish to use both access trails to make a loop, as described below. The Seward Highway is scheduled to be reconstructed in the next few years. When shoulders or a parallel path are added, it will be easier to walk the distance between trailheads. High grasses may obscure the turnoff to the northern trail when you return from Ptarmigan Lake, so the loop is best hiked beginning at the northern trailhead. Anglers will find grayling, salmon, Dolly Varden, and rainbow trout in Ptarmigan Creek and grayling in Ptarmigan Lake.
