Located about 70 miles from Anchorage. Hope was a mining camp for Resurrection Creek in the old times. The world famous Resurrection trail starts here and ends in Cooper Landing.

This small town looks like a big open air museum, locals have moved to these old buildings to keep them up. There are fishing and hiking possibilities in the area including 200 miles of trails in the Chugach National Forest with campgrounds and cabins.

There was a nice campground also in town at the end of the road with a fascinating view to the other side. If I could choose i would stay there next time no doubt.
