Homes and roads pile atop one another throughout the lower Eagle River Valley, pushing ever higher up the hillsides. Above this sprawl, however, is one of the most scenic ridge walks in Chugach State Park. An unbroken string of gentle peaks extends the length of Eagle River Valley, beckoning walkers of all abilities. The hardest part of the hike is finding the pint-sized trailhead. It’s tucked halfway up the hillside, only minutes from downtown Eagle River.
