I know there is another thread about this topic but it was about a week ago, and I'm needing something that will be for the 8th through the 15th of April. I'll be in Anchorage for that period and I'd like to get as much hiking in as I can, but I don't have any snowshoes or skiis. Does anyone know any trails that would be accessible around that time that are within an hour or two from Anchorage? I'll definitely try out Gold Mint Trail that was mentioned on the previous thread. Happy hiking!
