There are so many different and great hikes, trails, day-use areas, rivers, lakes, and such in Chugach State Park. There is something for everyone. Flattop Mountain is a fantastic hike. Thunderbird Falls is an easy hike in a different part of the park. There are nearly unlimited possibilities.

Were We hiked in Chugach state park while staying at the Alyeska hotel in Girdwood. It was a fun hike with beautiful scenery. The trail was extremely well maintained and there was information posted along the way.

The Bird Point Park
Aug 2019
The Bird Point Park is part of Chugach State Park. It is a very wonderful rest area to take a break from Seward Highway. There is a nice walkway facing the Turnagain Arm. No matter which way you turn the scenery of this area is just breathtaking. Posters along the walkway help visitors to understand the area. That was a refreshing stop for us in last August sunny day. Happy Travelling!

Views are stunning here!
Sep 2019
We travelled here on our way to the airport in Anchorage after our cruise. The views are spectacular. We were given about 20 minutes to walk around when the driver stopped. We did not stay in this park just long enough to take a couple of dozen photos--maybe more, because every time you moved you saw something more! It truly is a wonderful visit!

Not to be missed
Jan 2020
This park covers nearly a half-million acres and has multiple access points from Girdwood to Chugiak. There are hiking trails, ski trails, biking trails, and access to the backcountry. By all means if you're in town for a short visit, drive to the Glen Alps parking lot and check out the view from the overlook- you can see five mountain ranges from there, and most of the Anchorage bowl.

Beautiful Area
Aug 2019
This is a very beautiful area with a lot to see and do. There are several easy hiking trials which we did on our way to Girdwood. We were not there overnight but it looks like if you have time it might be a fun place to stay.
