Tour Overview

Join us on this winter hike to discover Alaska's natural beauty in the dead of winter! Along a 4-mile trail through Chugach State Park, follow your guide.

The Eagle River Nature Center, located deep along the north fork of the Chugach State Park's huge Eagle River, hosts the first leg of this journey, which takes you to a network of forested trails. The American Dipper, moose, and small creatures such as the snowshoe hare and red fox may be seen swimming.

Then ride a little distance to Barbara Falls, the greatest waterfall in Chugach State Park. This portion is a half-mile hike with amazing ice dams, glistening snow crystals, and point-and-shoot photo opportunity around every bend. It's quite fulfilling, and it's a fantastic way to wrap up your tour.
