You can camp here, walk the trails, or bike, but be sure to bring your camera along to capture amazing sights. You will see glaciers, waterfalls, gorgeous aqua blue glacial lakes, mountains, and more!

It's more like a highway passing through a large and beautiful wilderness area. Other than foot trails available for hikers, it's really just a scenic drive.

Chugs have is beautiful! You could spend days hiking the many trails that are throughout the park. You can access it via the Seward Highway...there are many scenic turnouts along the water as well. If I had to do our 10-day Alaska trip over, I would spend more time exploring trails here and skipped some other places we visited (Whottier... More

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.
