This is a great spot for an introduction to the Alaskan backcountry. Enjoy the easy hiking across the plateau with stunning views of Wrangell and others as well as views of Long Glacier.

The more adventurous can descend to the glacier and spend an afternoon exploring the exciting and varied world of ice. Other hikes include Cheshnina Falls.

Easy walking combined with stunning veiws make this an ideal spot for a laid-back excursion into the Alaskan wild.

 

What a View !!! What a Pilot!
We took off from the grass strip next to the paved one and turned East toward the park. The first thing we did was go over some of the mud volcanos for a real good look. We then proceeded further East to Mount Drum and went up and down the glaciers there; taking pictures everywhere. We also saw Dahl sheep in their summer range on the sides of the mountains. We then flew up over a 8800 foot saddle to view some pinnacles and out on to the Wrangell glacier. Flying back to the strip (cement this time) we couldn't believe how many picture we each took. You have got to do this. Regards, OldeBear
