Hiking and Camping in Alaska

Even though this blog is primarily about Colorado that doesn’t mean we cant discuss other states.

We’ve all heard of it but very few people have ever been to this state It’s big and it’s cold. It also used to belong to Russia; though, it was bought by the Americans in 1867 for only seven million dollars.

And that state is: Alaska

If you’re a hiker or a camper who would like to visit Alaska on your next adventure then keep reading. Below, you can find a list of the best locations to go hiking and camping in Alaska.

Trek Alaska

It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting for a weekend or for a week, because this trail ranges from three to nine days long. Not only this, but there are several levels of difficulty along the trail, because it can be just as easy as it is difficult. That’s what makes Trek Alaska ideal for everyone: even if you’ve never hiked before, you can go on this trail.

The testimonials on the website rave about the great time that campers and hikers had, here. There are even camping sites around the area, so you don’t have to worry about finding a place to set up your tent or hammock and your lightweight camping stove.

Denali National Park and Reserve

During this hike at one of Alaska’s best know parks, you aren’t confined to a single trail and you aren’t forced to follow one, either; instead, you can go off-track. This allows you to experience nature at its very fullest at Denali. Not only can you go off-track, but it’s encouraged and the trails that you can use are very small.

Winner Creek Trailhead

Should you be looking for somewhere to bring your friends and family on vacation or just for a weekend out, then Winter Creek is where you should be turning your head. There are two trails: the lower and upper trails. The first is three miles long and begins at a hotel. With the lower trail, you can see the Winner Creek Gorge; so, you should choose this one if that’s what you’re interested in. The upper trail, on the other hand, is only a few years old. It’s longer than the older trail and; thereby, takes more time. At nine miles long, it’s three times the size of the lower trail.

Bishop’s Beach Trail
