Route Description

This variation of the Goat Trail allows you to remain at high elevations and avoid the larger river crossings on the Chitistone. After landing at Skolai, you'll follow the same route over Chitistone pass and along the gorge. At the top of Chitistone Falls, you will turn up a small creek valley leading into high alpine meadows, surrounded by hanging glaciers on one end and the impressive views of Mt. Bona (16,421") and Mt. Churchill (15,640’) on the other. Watch for caribou, Dall sheep, mountain goats, grizzlies, wolves, and wolverine.



Special Features of This Route

Streams: There are a couple potentialy challenging stream crossings. Be prepared and knowledgable about safe crossing techniques.

Terrain: There is a section in the Chitistone valley of steep traverses through exposed scree slopes.

Certificate of Excellence

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. .
