  • What's the blueberry report?

    I heard today that there are blueberries around Flattop. What's the report? Anybody picking yet?

    I have been eating them for three weeks. There are a lot of them, they are slightly tart, but delicious.......and free.

      Lots and lots of ripe blueberries on the trails above Anchorage. Best year in a long time.

        Not to horn in on your best spots, but we have been here 4 years and have yet to go berry picking. Gotta do everything once to get the experience right? Any suggestions on where to go locally? We have planned a trip up to Hatchers Pass to pick but not sure if they are ripe yet! Appreciate the insights.

          Got a report from a friend just today that the berries up on Hatcher pass are ripe.

            Thanks a million! Will save a few gallons of gas, though the views are worth the trip!

              I was eating them off the bush out in PWS two weeks ago.. some ripe, some still green.. but the rip ones were wonderful.

                Any good picking spots near or north of Sutton?

                We're still new to the area and still looking for good blueberry picking sites up along the Glenn north of Palmer. I have been told about picking near Bonnie Lake (mi 83) and around Purinton Creek (mi 90.7). Can anyone comment on the location and access routes for these or other picking spots?

                Thanks!

                  Bonnie Lake is marked along the Glenn Hwy, Purinton is accessed from the trailhead parking lot/pull out for both Purinton and Boulder Creeks. I'll be heading further east up the Glenn this weekend and let you know what I find.

                    Lots around Eureka, Powerline Pass and Paxson. Some are overripe, many are still green. Denali Hwy sucked for berries of all kinds.

                              I was wondering the same thing or is it still a little early for the bears to move into the berries?
