  • Looking for a easy hike/walking trail then this one is for you. It's gets humid therefore make sure you bring enough water with you.  more »
  • Went fishing, and flew over only a small part of the forest. Beautiful area. Highly recommended to get away from it all.  more »

  • Walked the trail at mosquito cove with 8 kids 3yrs to 8yrs. Beautiful little cove and kids enjoyed throwing rock in. Trail was nicely kept and easy enough for most abilities. Beautiful mossy trees and tons of blueberries and red huckleberries.
  • I really don't know how I would describe it. Breathtaking doesn't do it justice. Hubbard Glacier was spectacular also! Alaska is just majestic!
