    Do Not Stay Here


    As a local Anchorage resident, please heed the warnings of travelers who've stayed at the Inlet Inn when they say how bad this place is. It should not be listed as a possible accommodation by Virtual Tourist, Tripadvisor or any other travelers' website until it is either massively cleaned up or razed and something new built in its place. DO NOT STAY HERE. I'm embarrassed by this place being offered as a place for anyone to stay.

    Unique Quality: There are none that another, better downtown hotel/motel can provide.

Anchorage for 5 weeks!!!

by Kelli_21

Hi everyone.

I will be in Anchorage for 5 weeks, starting March 18th. I was there for a month last summer, but it seems like almost everything is closed for the season. I would love to do some day-hikes while I am there, something like Flattop. Any suggestions? Also, any fantastic things to do in the city? I went to the museum and a couple of the touristy places, but Im looking for more of a local feel while Im there. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it. Oh and anywhere to grab a good beer, please come and join me!

Thanks Kel!

Don`t know any hikes but I know you never try to race the tide in Turnagain Arm.
Chilkoot Charlies was voted best bar in the US by Playboy magazine a few years ago. There are a few brew pubs in town that are also quite good like Mooses Tooth and Glacier. Weather and daylight will still be variables for day hikes

Lots of hikes available. The park headquarters in Eagle River has some good maps and tips.
Humpy's, F Street and Darwin's Theory are all pubs downtown that I like to hang out at when in the big city. Fletcher's in the Captain Cook is a nice upscale spot (or the Crow's Nest at the top of the hotel).
Any more questions just ask.

Get a trail map of Anchorage/Eagle River. Tons of places to hike. The area East of Eagle river towards the nature center is a lot of fun. I like to take a drive down to the Kenai and hike down there. The views are awsome. Again, no shortage of places. Of course, you'r ea little early in the season and being Alaska snow and cold nasty weather is always a possibility so be prepared.

My favorite place for beer and crab legs is Henry's near the Dimond Center. Her eis a link to a review of the place with a bunch of photo's (

Henry's is good - the original started here in Kodiak and still my favorite here. Would do better in Anchorage if the location were more convenient.

Hope you are still checking this while you are here? Near Point is a great hike right now because snow cover is minimal. Also, Wolverine is in good shape with no avy danger if you stick to the ridge. Both trails are accessed out of the Prospect Heights parking area. Check out my VT site for exact directions and some photos. Turnagain trail and Bird Ridge are just south of town and should be doable. Flattop is generally not advisable this time of year because of Avalanche danger but you can go further up the valley to the Wedge if you have skis or snoshoes for the approach. I have been out almost every day this week and it is fantastic weather for hiking right now. If you want someone to go with shoot me an email...

Quick trail update for you - I just went up Wolverine Mountain again yesterday. The trail to the top is in great condition now. Really well worn path - can't miss it.

Turnouts along the highways

by PA2AKgirl

Alaska planned their highways extremely well. The Seward Highway (which leads to…can you guess? Seward!) follows the Turnagain Arm for quite a distance and along the way, there are numerous turnouts and places to park for either resting, wildlife viewing, a small hike or just to look out at the water and watch the incredible tides. I say incredible because when it’s low, you can look out forever at the mudflats. Of course, these parking areas do get crowded, but if you feel like you don’t want to stop at one, another will be right down the road. Common sense tells you to look before you pull back onto the road and signal well ahead if you’re going to pull off one to one of these. It’s a 2 lane highway with heavy truck traffic. Also, there are plenty of areas that do not allow you to stop, so definitely just wait until the next parking area.

Starting Line for the Iditarod Dog Sled Race

by Stephen-KarenConn

Each winter Anchorage is host to two of the world's greatest sled dog races, the Fur Rendezvous World Championship Dog Sled Race and the Iditarod. This is the starting line for both of these great races.

The World Championship Sled Dog Race is one of the fastest, toughest and oldest races of its kind. First run in 1946, it is a part of the Fur Rendezvous, the premier winter festival in Alaska.

The Iditarod had its beginning as a mail and supply route from the coastal towns of Seward and Knik, northeastward through several interior mining camps, and ultimately to Nome on the Bering Sea. In 1925 the Iditarod Trail became a life saving highway when Nome was stricken by a diptheria epidemic. The only way to get serum to that remote town in winter was by intrepid dog mushers and their faithful hard-driving dogs. The modern Iditarod dog sled race began in 1973, to commemorate that event. It has been aptly called "The Last Great Race on Earth," covering 1,150 miles and taking from 10 to 17 days through some of the most inhospital terrain on earth.

On 4th Avenue, between D and E Streets.

Arctic to Indian Ski Traverse

by onebadcat

Arctic Valley to Indian is a 22 mile one-way route that first drops 1000' to the valley floor then follows Ship Creek as it gains 1300 ft. to Indian Pass. Most people ski this trip in a day and try to travel light and fast although I am told it makes a beautiful overnight as well.

This is not a technical traverse but may require some route finding skills (if the weather goes bad) and a strong set of legs. The solitude and quiet of this area is only broken by birds and an occasional passing skier as no snowmachines are allowed here. The surounding ridges and peaks are beautiful and at your sides all day long. Most people will wait to tackle this trip until February or March so that temperatures and daylight are at a maximum. Pick a sunny day and wear layers so you can strip down if needed.

I would advise getting together with at least one friend for this traverse for safety and for company. Most people ski Arctic Valley to Indian instead of Indian to Arctic because it allows for a slow steady climb to Indian Pass then a QUICK drop down to the parking lot. I like to go this direction so I can have a few beers at the Brown Bear Saloon at days end. Whichever way you choose a vehicle should be arranged for both ends as this is a one-way ski.

Check with local ski clubs or post messages at AMH or REI to find a ride or partners. Make sure you have a pack with food, plenty of water, possibly a flask of schnapps and enough extra clothes. Plan for the worst weather not the best! A compass and map would be a wise investment though if other skiers have broken trail not entirely necessary. Classic or backcountry X-C gear is the norm here although I have seen some people grunting through on telemark setups. If you need to rent gear in Anchorage try REI or to buy a cheap used setup try Play It Again Sports.

Hike Crow Pass (2-3 days)

by AlexisElizabeth

If you are a hiker, one of the most amazing hikes you can do is Crow Pass. It is a 27 mile stretch from Girdwood to Eagle River. It's best to start at the Girdwood end, where you will have some serious uphill for several miles. Then you reach an idyllic mountaintop area full of glacial lakes and discarded gold-mining equipment. Then you will cross some rocky/icy parts and see some enormous glaciers. Next you descend to the valley through the woods and cross several rivers, including the imposing Eagle River. Finally, you hike through some pleasant trails and end up at the Eagle River Nature Center. You will see so much...bears, moose, marmots! And the views are indescribable.
