With the trailhead off just 40 minutes from Anchorage off Konikson Road, this is an excellent way to access some of Alaska's best backcountry and wildlife. This 1/2-day trip is the perfect way to end or begin an Alaskan Cruise or vacation. Based on trail conditions we will choose a route taking us across the Penguin River up more than 2000 feet to the high alpine meadows of Hidden Valley or travel to a place we call "Sanctuary" where we take a short hike down to a clear water pool with a spectacular waterfall.
The pictures on this page offer a glimpse into one of Alaska's best kept secrets and all within close distance to Anchorage. How is that possible? There are no road signs marking the entrance to this part of the Chugach State Park. Most locals don’t even know about this wild scenic area. Adventure seekers do not need to travel many miles out of town searching for a true Alaskan backcountry riding experience.
Alaska ATV Adventures focuses on small groups, providing excellent wildlife viewing and unrivalled scenery accompanying a ride specifically tailored to the group. This awesome trail winds through the northern reaches of the Pacific Coastal Temperate Rainforest about ½ way between Anchorage and Girdwood in the community known as Bird Creek.. The Bird Creek / Girdwood 3-hour tour includes a hike downhill to spectacular waterfall where salmon come to spawn mid-June through September; during this time there is a very good chance of seeing bears from the overlook and high alpine meadows.
