Route Description

In the alpine country of Nikolai Pass, look to Mt. Blackburn (16,390’) in one direction, the snowy University Range (16,421’) in the other, and the glacial waters of Nizina River 2400’ below. Hike along rolling slopes toward the base of Sourdough peak, or explore nearby remains of old Nikolai Mine. Great photo opportunities.

Certificate of Excellence

Thanks so much for taking such good care of a couple of schleppers from the city. For us it turned out to be a deep experience of some kind. We won’t need pictures to bring this one back; just a map with Don’s line on it..
