Williwaw Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A trail with options for day hikes or multiday adventures, through alpine tundra and a series of lakes, only a short drive from downtown Anchorage.

Middle Fork Campbell Creek flows through a jewel of an alpine valley, so close to the heart of Anchorage that it’s possible to do a long wilderness day hike among Dall sheep and alpine flowers and still get back to the city in time for evening entertainment. Bands of sheep roam the valley and the nearby ridges, and Williwaw Lakes, a series of shallow alpine lakes, lie in crystalline beauty below craggy 5,445-foot Mount Williwaw."
