Crow Pass Trail – One of Our Favorite Hikes in Alaska

Crow Pass Trail near Girdwood, Alaska

This is unquestionably one of my favorites, if not my favorite, hike of the trip so far. Considered to be one of the best hikes in the Chugach Mountains, the trail follows a portion of the Iditarod Trail. If you hike the whole trail, it’s 21 miles long. We just hiked a portion, which took us past a glacier, waterfalls, wildflowers, ruins, and edible berries. It’s challenging, but not all that difficult, so it’s easy to enjoy the hike as opposed just power through trying not to pass out. I can’t recommend this one enough. The photos below will tell you why.
