Do the drive but also do the hike!

The drive into Valdez is unquestionably one of the most jaw-dropping in the state and arguably in all of North America so take your time & soak it in, especially on a clear day. I... read more

The drive into Valdez is unquestionably one of the most jaw-dropping in the state and arguably in all of North America so take your time & soak it in, especially on a clear day. I would also recommend the Keystone Canyon hike which starts at Bridal Veil Falls. The sign says 'Goat trail' but it picks up the Keystone Canyon... More

You must not be in a hurry. You will stop many times and will take your breath away each and every stop. This is a wonderful place for all ages.

The scenery is beautiful!!!!!!!!!! You must drive through the Keystone Canyon. On its way, we also went to Worthington Glacier and physically touched it. Nice trip!

Prepare to stop lots as you drive into town! The views in the canyon are amazing, and the gold rush history of the canyon and surrounding area is fascinating.

One eye-popping scene after another through the canyon, including Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls. Long downhill run for bikers from the pass into the canyon.

Make sure to pull over and take in the view! It's worth the time. Several beautiful waterfalls make this a favorite spot for photography.

The drive from Anchorage to Valdez is truly awe inspiring but when the road dips down into this lush green canyon, walls covered with ferns and spectacular waterfalls crashing down the impossibly steep sides, the "oh wows"" stop and awestruck silence starts. There are places to pull over off the road thank goodness, because it's too amazing to be taken... More

Wow! Bridal Veil and Horsetail Falls. Worthington Glacier, Keystone Canyon, Thompson Pass. You almost become numb to the beauty around each corner. Horsetail falls is right there you can touch the water if you want. There are many smaller falls on this route, but those are the biggest. Melting glacier water and snow runoff rushing down to the sea. Just... More
