Peters Creek Trailhead

(Peters Creek - Chugach Region)


Trail:

No trailhead parking. Private property along first quarter mile of trail. Be respectful of local landowners. Quiet area, nice views of wooded valley first 5 miles.

Winter: Skiing is excellent, and when snow conditions are adequate to protect underlying vegetation, much of the valley is open to snowmobiles.


Facilities:
  •  Access: Mile 21, Glenn Highway, Peters Creek Exit, follow city map uphill to Malcolm Drive and trailhead. No signs.
  •  Travel Means: Foot, bicycles allowed first 5 miles, snowmobiles when snow levels are adequate.
  •  Distance: 5 miles or 8.1 kilometers one way to end of abandoned roadbed. Unmarked, unmaintained trail continues up valley 11 miles to treeline and open tundra.
  •  Elevation Gain:
  •  Difficulty: Moderate - old roadbed has steep muddy sections and unbridged stream crossings; unmarked trail beyond can be easily lost.
