Our first night in the Anchorage vicinity was spent at Eklutna Lake, part of the Chugach State Park. We camped there one night and did some hiking the next day. All but one of the trails were closed due to a couple of small forest fires.
The trail that was once an old road bed. We love the trails wide enough for of all three to walk together.
This is where the maintained trail ended and a couple of unmaintained trails branched off to go to the top of the peaks or a mountain pass. We stopped at this point and headed back down because we had a mission in town to attend.
