"When you are in Anchorage,..." Alaska Things to Do Tip by richiecdisc

Alaska Things to Do: 495 reviews and 833 photos


When you are in Anchorage, don't just shop and eat. Remember that you are still in Alaska and get outside and enjoy it.
Numerous day hikes. I liked Flattop Mountain for great views and a calorie burner to fend off the pie at the Moose's tooth and all the great brews available.

Directions: You can hike to a USFS cabin not too far from here and hike some or all of the Iditarod trail. Access from Girdwood, just south of Anchorage.
othercontact: This is the view from the cabin

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
