South Central Alaska a Guide to the Hiking & Canoeing Trails Excerpt

Length: 57 pages1 hour


This book offers abundant details on these sometimes harsh routes in the final frontier. Each listing, whether a trail designed for the canoeist or the hiker, gives length, unique attractions, trail conditions, degree of difficulty, facilities en route, elevation gain and the local U.S. Forest Service contact. Over 100 trails and 60 cabins are covered.

The information in this book will help with your initial preparations. It will give you many trail options, detailing their specific attributes – distance from your home base, available activities, quality of the landscape, difficulty in travel and so on. Opportunities for hiking in Southcentral abound, but often information is not available. With this book and by contacting the managing agency before your trip, you will have new alternatives to consider before narrowing them down to two or three choices and then studying those in greater detail.

Choices can be made, reviewed or changed in order to arrive at the best itinerary for you. It gives time for you and your group to look forward to the upcoming hiking experience, allowing for ample preparation time and improving the outcome.
