Beautiful views

Spectacular views, amazing fresh air. Also, this is adjacent to the Cook inlet, where you can see the Turnagain Arm Bore tide, one of the most dramatic in the world.

This state park gives you the opportunity to see , and experience Alaska and its wildlife in a very intimate way. I would highly recommend a stop here.

Right on the edge of civilization. Don't be fooled by the paved parking and walking paths. You are no longer at the top of the food chain. Beautiful views that go on forever. Don't become complacent... we've seen bear scat not to far from parking lots.

We did this as part of the 907 All in One Tour Got out several times to take photos, feel the glacier water from the mountains, and take in the sights. Absolutely stunning!

We went on a rainy day but it wasn't terrible. We took the rainbow trail, there was a recent fire. We saw bear prints but no bears but keep an eye out.

Chugach State Park has many trails and is extremely large. Wildlife is present, so bear bells are recommended.

We biked 18 miles of the well groomed bike path from Girdwood going north. What a wonderful day we had, and the views are great. We even got to watch a herd of beluga whales spout along the water.

I was in Alaska for 2 weeks and never saw a bear or a moose the entire time. I purchased $44 bear spray just in case of an emergency but never broke the seal and kept the packaging in tact so I was able to return it with my receipt. Supposedly the bears live in the Chugach National Forest and... More
