For every valley in Chugach State Park with a hiking trail, many others remain untracked. Ewe Valley is one such area, included in this guide as a place to explore. There is no specific trail information or map here because there’s no trail to follow. In fact, this valley has no official name; we call it Ewe Valley after the massive, craggy peak towering at its eastern edge, and for the herds of Dall sheep that call it home. It’s stunning to see so many of these elegant, agile creatures confidently scrambling across endless slopes of black scree.
