Loved the fact that within an hour's drive (or less for some trails and sights) you can be completely surrounded by unspoiled sights and sounds. Hiking trails are plentiful whether inexperienced or adventurous. Catch the Borewave at Beluga Point (minutes from So anchorage) or head out to other attractions. When you head out - make sure you are prepared for... More

Many trails for every hiker -- be sure to buy a trail guide or park map so that you can evaluate which trail may be right for you. Remember that when a trail in Alaska is rated as difficult, they are not kidding. Be safe.

Saw the wild moose wandering around the park grazing! Can't say anything that I did not like about Chugach State Park!

The snow was mostly melted (in the middle of February?) so I decided to hike around the park a bit. I pulled off in the Bird Creek area and hiked a couple of the easier trails around. So many beautiful scenes at every turn. Many colorful birds. Trails were marked with informational signs as well. Overall, a great way to... More

Ok so we'll presume you know about bears and how to look after yourself in the backcountry. Great area for hiking with clear trails and absolutely breath taking views. However it's all close to civilisation so day trips really work. The Rangers are really helpful. The rock isn't.

I live one block from Chugach State Park in Anchorage, AK and I would have to say the reason we bought our house. Awesome trails that I can walk with my dog, husband, Family and friends. Almost always see wildlife and it is a beautiful park. I would highly recommend to any outdoor enthusiast. Right now my Husband is photographing... More

It was very cool to watch the salmon spawn right below your feet. Such a neat walkway where this could be observed. The Chugach is clean and awesome.

Beautiful drive for a couple of hours before heading to the airport. As with all our Alaska drives the views were amazing. Would like to have been able to see more but alas our time was up.

We were in Alaska a week before sending our son to University of Alaska at Anchorage. So, there was some rush involved in this location (laundry, trips to Walmart for school stuff). We visited lovely Seward and on the way back my darling wanted to go straight back to Anchorage, but mom took a left. Holy cow. We hiked up... More
