Indian Creek to Glen Alps Traverse Professional Review and Guide

"If Chugach State Park has a specific birthplace, it is Indian Creek Valley. In 1969, a petition to log the valley’s towering old-growth spruce spurred a group of citizens to action. They sought to protect not only this valley, but the whole of Anchorage’s vast backyard by campaigning for a state park.

The park they proposed was larger than any ever created by a state, nearly two-thirds the size of Yosemite National Park. Backed by a coalition of local groups and widespread public support, they prevailed. Indian Valley is testament to their achievement: it remains, as it was then, a serene and pristine slice of Alaska’s wilderness."
