Great Hike Near Resurrection Bay

If you are ready for a big hike that will take you into some of the best parts of Alaska, head to Resurrection Pass. The trip through the Kenai Mountains will take approximately three to six days, depending on how frequently you stop and whether you decide to camp out. There are eight free cabins along the trail, and if you plan your hike from one cabin to the next, you can follow the trail knowing you have a great place to rest at the end of each night. Just be sure to reserve the cabins in advance because they are popular spots for anyone hiking the trail. Tent camping is also permitted, but not nearly as comfortable and dry as the cabins. The Alaska Forest Service has cleared away numerous sites and many feature storage boxes for food so curious bears will not make their presence known. Be sure to be familiar with and use proper bear safety techniques when hiking. The area if filled with wildlife and only the most advance hikers should trek out on their own. The trail features areas for fishing and stopping to photograph and view the scenery. There are a number of large lakes in the area, but use caution when near the water, and treat any water before drinking it.
