"Powerline Pass Trail" Chugach Mountains Tip by HasTowelWillTravel
Chugach Mountains, Anchorage: 17 reviews and 28 photos
This trail runs a long while, from the Glen Alps area to the Indian trailhead. It cuts up through a glacier-cut valley, past the cirque at the top and over the namesake pass, descending down to the other trailhead on the other side. Getting up through the pass is a bit of a huff, ascending 1300' on one side and 1900+' on the other. But it makes going down a lot of fun :)
Keep your eyes out for moose and other wildlife. Also in the late summer, mossberries and blueberries grow in profusion along the trail and river.
Trail length: 11 miles or 17.6 km (one way)
Directions: Take Minnesota south, which curves into O'Malley Rd. Keep that up till you reach Hillside, hang a right, then follow the signs to the Glen Alps trailhead parking lot.
