The flight out of McCarthy will take you through beautiful Skolai Pass and down the White River before heading west into the Nutzotin Mountains. You get to see a lot of the park on this flight.
There are opportunities for day trips in all directions out of Horsfeld or you could do a loop trip. Lakes and valleys to the north invite exploration or make the crossing of Beaver Creek and explore the hills and mountains to the south. The variety of terrain ensures that there is something interesting and challenging for hikers of all abilities.
This part of the park is seldom visited.
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. .
