If your trip includes Anchorage, don't skip a visit to Cugach State Park. You don't even have to leave the highway to enjoy this beautiful park. There are many easy walking trails right off the road.

Drove through the mountains on our way from Anchorage to Seward. We were not able to stop and hike, but the drive itself is fantastic.

There is nothing like the sun setting in the Chugach mountains, washing them in amazing shades of pinks and purples.

Beautiful day hinting on Winter Creek Trail. Just a few steps away from the Lodge in Girdwood and your on the trail. Well marked path is very user friendly and handicapped accessible. Wonderful vistas along the hike to the bridge over the namesake. Well worth the effort. Trail continues but not as accessible at this point forward but again well... More

Great to drive by and through... lots of stops along the way for hikes, or just to pull over and take photos. Nature at its finest.

Chugach is vast and absolutely gorgeous, the dense rainforest and the wildlife that calls it home, all makes for a great visit. Go hiking or see the coast of the forest from a cruise ship. You think you're in Costa Rica!
