Alaska Magazine December/January Issue listed Readers’ Destination Picks – and Hatcher Pass was Number 1!

Want to see what all the excitement is about? Prepare yourself for beautiful scenery, peaceful hikes, stunning rock formations, rivers, streams, and plenty to see and do in this amazing part of Alaska!

Hatcher Pass edged out Seward as the number one destination in 2015. Readers wowed us with photos of the Little Susitna River and wintery trails leading to Reed lakes. One Facebook follower said, “Archangel Valley. Can’t beat it!” The area encompasses 300,000 acres, and its proximity to Anchorage (it’s a three-hour round- trip drive) means easy access to recreation in the picturesque Talkeetna Mountains. Waterfalls, glacier-fed rivers and lakes, tundra and wildflowers, along with Independence Mine and an exceptional number of hiking trails, make Hatcher Pass a top pick for travel in the state.
