CROW PASS HIKING TOUR
The Crow Pass hiking tour is a strenuous, full-day hiking tour that is one of the best trails in Southcentral Alaska. Join your naturalist guide as you enjoy glacier views, waterfalls, wildlife viewing, wildflowers, and mining ruins. Crow Pass is the highest point on the Historic Iditarod Trail. If you are an experienced hiker and are looking for a full day, strenuous hike, this is the tour for you.
THIS IS A FANTASTIC HIKE!
Arctic ground squirrels, marmots, and mountain goats inhabit the high country near Crow Pass, and bears, moose, and Dall sheep are frequently spotted too. Once you climb into the alpine tundra, check out the amazing tundra plants and lichens that survive in this harsh climate.
The trail is relatively snow-free by late June, though the Crystal Lake basin south of the pass and some of the gullies north of the pass may hold snow well into the summer. An alpine pass, mountain glaciers, mining and Iditarod Trail history, wildlife, and access to off-trail wilderness rambles; one of South-Central Alaska’s classic alpine traverses.
