How to spend last two days in Kenai

Plan arrive Alaska in early September. Have planned out the trip but last two days in Kenai.

...

Sept 7: Seward

Sept 8: leave Seward

Sept 9: back to Anchorage at mid-night to catch up red-eye flight back home

How to spend last two days in Kenai? I am thinking driving from Seward -> Copper Landing -> Soldotna -> Homer and then head back to Anchorage on Sept night. I am also interested in bearing viewing but keep low cost in mind. I heard Russian river has opportunity for bear viewing. Is there any hiking trail an lead there? Where I should stay night on Sept 8? In Copper Landing, Soldotna or Homer?

Thanks,

-T

The distance from Seward to Homer is about 175 miles and the return to Anchorage is 225 miles. This should help you make your mind up.

There is the Russian River falls trail out of Russian River campground at Cooper Landing.

Are you only spending one day & one night in Seward?

If so, stay there for the next night. Lots to do around Seward.

I will stay two nights in Seward (Sept 6 and Sept 7). Regarding Russian River falls trail, will the time (Sept 8) is fish run and possible to see bears there?

I would have to say that only the very lucky see bears at the falls & many of those that do are the first hikers up in the early morning. But it really is the luck of the draw.

I don't know much about the silver run that time of year since we have always been back in Anchorage working for the school system that time of year, going down to the Russian for the first 2 earlier red salmon runs.
