    Chugach State Park
    Stop: 4 hours
    We will visit either Rendezvous Mile High Ridgeline, two of the best ridgelines in the entire Chugach State Park. They feature both alpine scenes and 360 views of the Anchorage Bowl. We'll determine which location we visit based on weather and group ability the day of the hike. Ridgeline trekking is an incredibly unique way to see the landscape. While the ascent can be tough, once you arrive at the top, it is truly remarkable. You can see forever! On a clear day, we can even see Mt. Denali hundreds of miles away! Plus, the terrain can be fairly flat, making the trekking a truly enjoyable experience. During the tour, we may see moose, bear, Dall sheep, mountain goats, and a variety of small mammals like arctic squirrels and marmots. There are also plenty of birds to gaze at like bald eagles, thrushes, chickadees, and jays. This is one of our favorite ways to hike Alaska and the Chugach State Park. Transportation included in total time of tour: (1 hour transportation & 4 hours hiking)

We booked our tour through Alaska Tour and Travel as part of a package. Go Hike Alaska was promptly emailing us ahead of time for waivers and confirmation of pick up location, etc. The Alpine Classic Trek was our second experience with Go Hike Alaska on this vacation.

Our Guide Lea was prompt at the pick up location. We waited 10 minutes while she tried to find the last person booked for the excursion. Once it was confirmed that they would not make it, we were off! Lea is a wonderful guide and we were happy to have her lead us on this second outing.

The hike is a steep incline right off. We had gone up Mt Healy in Denali, and it was more of a switchback that went up gradually. The Alpine Hike was straight up with several breaks provided by Lea to catch our breath, or I should say my breath, the rest of my party seemed to have no issues!

We were advised to get some pictures in early, since the clouds will be unpredictable on this day when we reach the top. Lea was correct! We got to the top and were surrounded by a cloud. You could not see anything. We stayed at the top for 30 minutes - in that timeframe it did clear up somewhat, and we were able to get some really nice pictures. We were given a choice on paths to return back down to the vehicle. Lea made sure to explain what the differences were. We chose the back side. It was a moose trail, and muddy. We were prepared. It was muddy, but a very different decent! All of my party enjoyed the hike up and back down.

My husband and I did the Alpine Classic Trek at the end of August and it was absolutely one of the highlights of our time in Alaska. Matt was a fantastic guide, hitting the perfect mix of laid-back fun and expertise. He was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and helped us safely forage some tasty berries while keeping us feeling safe and energized on the unfamiliar terrain of the national park.
We found the website description of the trek to be very accurate. Matt picked us up at the meeting point precisely at the noted time and had us back in town as expected, following Covid protocols during transit. We hiked for about three hours and although we didn't find the uphill portion too strenuous, we were very thankful for the hiking poles he provided for the slippery, muddy route back down. Overall, this was a super fun (and educational!) way to see the area!

My wife and I did the Alpine Classic Trek in July. My biggest regret is not going even bigger. The hike was enjoyable, the view from the top incredible, and the guide (Rebecca) knowledgable. I highly recommend.

This hike was excellent! Our guide, Greg, took us to a trail outside of Anchorage that we would have never found on our own, given this was our first trip to AK. Greg is really kind, insightful, and all around a cool guy. He went out of his way to ensure our safety and enjoyment. Would highly recommend to those who like to hike. Great way to see AK from yet another beautiful perspective. Many thanks to Greg!
