I've been planning on hunting palmer creek road this fall (black bear). I will be in the Anchorage area this weekend and have been planning on scouting the area, but I'm pretty sure that it would be tough to get back there without a significant avalanche danger. I know the road is closed till early June, but how soon is it that you can safely walk the palmer creek road to the end?
Being that palmer creek will likely not be doable this early in the year, I was also thinking of checking out the cooper landing section of the Resurrection creek. How deep is the snow on the lower sections of the trail? I'm assuming I should plan on bringing snowshoes?
