Although Crow Pass often throngs with hikers, nearby Jewel Mountain remains overlooked and rarely visited. It was not always such a quiet place, however. The mountain’s western slopes—dotted with old trails, littered with rusted cans, punctured by mine shafts—attest to a different era, when miners spent decades digging through Jewel’s heaps of scree in search of gold. Although Jewel’s mining days are long past, it now offers something even more valuable: solitude. This isn’t a trip for the beginner. Climbing Jewel requires some scrambling, and takes you closer to a glacier’s edge than some might care to go. The upper part of the route can stay snowy late into the summer. But navigate carefully and you’ll find Jewel’s secluded summit just a short walk from the well-worn Iditarod Trail.
