    Chugagh State Park

    Chugagh State Park literally surrounds Anchorage on the north, east and south. Many of the popular trails, such as Flattop mountain, are just minutes away from Anchorage. The Glen Alps trailhead, where the trail to Flattop begins, along with several others, also has several overlooks which provide a nice view of the nearby mountain ranges, and possibly provide an even nicer view if the weather is cooperating.

    Eklutna Lake

    Pronounced ek-LOOT-nuh, this montane reservoir lies in a natural Eden surrounded on three sides by mountains. Two of these are heavily forested, while the far peak across the lake wears a snowcap even through the summer. The lake itself is pristine, rather narrow but long, and serves as the hub of the area's hiking trails.

    Thunderbird Falls

    foot of Thunderbird Falls along the creek

    This turnoff is the first outlet from AK-1 heading out of downtown Anchorage toward Wasilla. A small parking area at the trailhead offers space for a limited number of cars, but the trail is level and short, going only a modest distance before reaching the falls. Here the hiker can either wind down into the chasm to meet the falls along Thunderbird Creek, or keep the upper path to watch with the others from a spacious platform.
