For a grand tour of the best Chugach State Park has to offer, head to the Historic Iditarod Trail. More commonly known as the Crow Pass Trail, it leads through quiet stands of birch; over a swift, cold river; and past high valleys, deep gorges, sapphire-blue tarns, and an immense glacier. Add several jagged peaks and scattered remnants of Alaska’s gold mining days, and you’re in for an unbeatable backpacking experience. Regular maintenance and heavy traffic (by Alaskan standards, that is) make the Historic Iditarod Trail less remote and wild than other hikes in this guide, but do not even think about missing it. You’ll be hard pressed to find a lover of Chugach State Park who hasn’t hiked this trail multiple times. Of course, you need not hike the whole trail. Excellent out-and-back trips are possible at either end. From Girdwood, hike to Crow Pass in an easy afternoon, lounge at Crystal Lake, and perhaps climb a nearby mountain. Start at Eagle River for walks of a different character, where you can hike through serene forests at the river’s edge and camp in the shadow of forbidding peaks named Korohusk, Kiliak, and Yukla—all derived from Dena’ina words meaning “evil spirits.”
