Virtually untouched by human presence, this is a remote hike through classic Wrangell terrain; massive glacier carved valleys, cascading waterfalls, and hidden alpine lakes, all await the adventurous hiker. Reminiscent of the Skolai Valley and the Goat Trail, The Seven Pass Route will challenge and amaze you with a constantly changing landscape. This route offers a great adventure for the seasoned backpacker looking for a challenging wilderness experience on a seldom traveled route.
You will move through constantly changing and varied terrain from lush, verdant valleys, to blue glacial landscapes, to barren, rock-strewn mountain passes. Even experienced backcountry travelers will feel challenged. If you’re looking for a true wilderness adventure, this is a great choice. Three different options allow for varied backcountry skill levels and trip lengths, but all will leave you with a truly unique wilderness experience.

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. .
