Historic Valdez Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Take a walk into history through Keystone Canyon, along the route used by seekers of gold more than 100 years ago. The Historic Valdez Trail climbs the mountainside above the south end of Keystone Canyon, and then traverses the west side of the canyon several hundred feet above the Lowe River. After the first initial climb at the south end, it’s an easy walk on a mostly level trail through a thick forest of Sitka spruce with occasional glimpses of spectacular waterfalls plunging down canyon walls and misty mountains looming overhead. Access points every 2 to 3 miles make several variations possible."
