    Default Are there any guided hikes for Crow Pass that leave Girdwood after 11 a.m.?

    My wife an I would are planning on taking the train from Anchorage to Girdwood (arrives in Girdwood at 10:55, departs to Anchorage at 7:45 p.m.) in August, and the only guided hiking trip I can find for Crow Pass leaves at 9 a.m. Is there another guided hiking trip that fits in this time schedule we're in Girdwood? Thanks

    You don't need a guide, mate. Your only issue would be transport to and from the trailhead. The train would be cool, but I'd highly recommend grabbing a rental car for the day if possible. This would allow access to the countless pullouts along Turnagain Arm. If you're continuing on the train that would make this unfeasible, obviously. I'm not sure if there are taxi services in Girdwood but you could schedule a pickup at a specific time. A guide is really not necessary as the trail is well defined. If you and your wife have decent hiking abilities, you could reach Raven Glacier in about 2 1/2 hours; the glacier is about four miles in. There's a lot to see along the way. At about three miles when you start nearing the Pass there are waterfalls galore and beautiful mountains. It'll take about 25 minutes drive time each way from Girdwood. It's a splendid hike!!!
