Well I was thinking about doing a shakedown hike for the ANC/valley area folks and thought I would put out the feelers to see if there was any interest. I was looking through my new "Walk About Guide to Chugach" and was intrigued by the Pioneer Ridge to Eklutina Lake Traverse" It is 23 miles and should be easy for an overnight trip. It is estimated at 10,000 cumulative vertical feet though the end is only 700' higher than the start. The trail starts at Knik River Road and ends at the Eklutina lake campground. I am planning on the Aug 2-3 overnight, Don't want them FBX folks to have all the fun
