I'm looking into adding a little more adventure to my hiking this summer. I've been all over the outlying areas of Chugach Park as well as the Eagle River and Eklutna Lake areas and hiked most all of the usual trails.
I'm looking into going from North Fork of Eagle River, past Symphony Lake and over the top to Ship Creek. Then up Ship Creek, over Morraine Pass, down Camp Creek to intersect the Crow Pass trail, across Eagle River and back down to the Eagle River Nature Center. I have the Chugach State Park map and it shows a trail for the route.
I'm familiar with the trail to Symphony Lake and the Crow Pass trail, but not the area between the two. I'll likely be traveling alone, but that is not a concern to me. I've spent a quite a bit of time in the mountains and have been out for up to 11 day stretches on sheep hunts, albeit those were with a hunting partner.
How much of a trail is it and how much bushwhacking is involved?
Can I do it in 4 days without busting my hump too much? I'd like to travel around 10 miles a day which will leave me time to enjoy myself too.
Anyone familiar with this route?
Any input is much appreciated.
