This is an amazing adventure through virtually untouched Alaskan wilderness. From glaciers to glacial rivers, and from tundra to thick brush, the route described below encompasses all aspects of a classic trip in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Mountaineering skills are not necessary for this trip, but because of the challenging terrain and remote location, it is recommended for strong backpackers with excellent route finding skills.
This route was only done for the first time in the summer of 2003 so it's definitely off the beaten track. This is a great choice for some one looking for an adventurous route.
Special Features of This Route
Snow and Ice: Depending on the route option you choose, ice/snow field travel may be involved.
Streams: Be prepared for moderate stream crossings.
Terrain: Hikers should be prepared for changing weather, steep and rough terrain and remote route finding.
We are back home less than 24 hours and while every day in Alaska was wonderful, it is no contest as to what the highlight of the trip was……our flight to McCarthy with Wrangell Mountain Air. Thanks for a great flight that will forever be carried in our minds and hearts! Moreover, we are telling everyone to skip their junkets to McKinley when they go to Alaska; Wrangell Air gives the best view in the 49th. .
