My wife and I are headed down to the Valdez area next weekend to scout out some hunting areas around and north of Thompson Pass. I thought I'd do some pre-scouting via the internet in hopes of saving myself some time. If anyone has any information about foot trails off of the Richardson Highway in the area of Thompson Pass and as far north at Stuart Creek or Boulder Creek, I'd appreciate a PM.

I'm not asking for any input on good hunting areas; we'll go put in the time ourselves to find the game. I would like to know which drainages have easy walking and which ones I'll have to spend some time busting brush to get to the mountains.
