This trail includes day hikes to longer ridgeline options with spectacular views of Eklutna Lake, the Mat Valley, and the tallest group of peaks in Chugach State Park. Mountain slopes bursting with wildflowers, bright creeks tumbling over rocky streambeds, bands of Dall sheep grazing in high meadows, and golden eagles riding the air currents above—this is what the country around Twin Peaks is all about. The 2.5-mile Twin Peaks Trail, an old roadway that’s closed to motor vehicles and bicycles, is the hiker’s highway into the alpine terrain below the craggy summits of Twin Peaks. The maintained trail ends at a fine viewpoint, and several unmaintained hiking routes branch off from there.
