Hope Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hope Point Trail is a great day hike, with the first stretch of trail suitable for families, while the route beyond is for more adventurous hikers, with opportunities to connect to other peaks in the Kenai Mountains.

Hope Point Trail begins with a gradual grade for the first mile with switchbacks, through a forest of cottonwood, spruce, and alder. The start of the route briefly runs parallel to Porcupine Creek. The trail continues and transitions to more moderate to strenuous, climbing from the creek to the alpine meadows covered with wildflowers in early summer. The switchback route continues above tree line to a mix of grassy mountainsides and rocky knolls with views of Resurrection Creek Valley below. Look for edible berries as you climb on the trail, especially in late summer/early fall. It is an easy route to follow, on what used to be used as a trail to a microwave tower site."
