I'm wanting to get the family into some bears this fall and have heard/read the Knik river valley is full of them. I've had my maps out and have been researching Google earth, but I'm having a hard time telling where the trails really are and how far they go back into the valley. We do not have ATVs nor do we have a boat, everything would be hiking in. I'm also open to other thoughts and suggestions as well, not looking for anyone's hot spot, but a general beginning point would be much appreciated. Also looking for any pointers on Moose and Caribou, went out this last year for moose in the valley, but can't compete with the vast distance others can cover with ATVs . Feel free to post, PM or email me direct.
Thanks in advance!
