An adventure of my life time!

Portage Valley of Chugach National Forest is truly an outdoor lovers’ dream place. Only 50 miles south of Anchorage, it offers almost everything one wants to see in nature:

Two nice hiking trails – Trail of Blue Ice (5 miles) and Byron Glacier Trail (0.8 miles one way)

Two Campgrounds

A visitor center with award-winning exhibits

Several lakes, large or small

Countless waterfalls

Half a dozen glaciers!
