  • Recommendations for May hikes

    Hello,
    I will be in Alaska in mid-May and am looking to do some hiking near Anchorage. I would like to do at least one ranked peak.
    Here are some of my requirements for a hike:
    • I do not want to do anything class 3 or above.
    • 12ish miles or less
    • 4000 vertical feet or less
    • Trailhead accessible without 4wheel drive
    • Low avalanche danger
    I am fine with snow as long as there isn't a big avalanche danger. I will have crampons and an ice ax.
    I would greatly appreciate some recommendations.

    I highly recommend buying the book ‘55 hikes’ for finding a hike (or several). Great descriptions and detailed information.

      Thank you,
      Is the 55 hikes book "55 Ways to the Wilderness in Southcentral Alaska?" That is what came up for me in an Amazon search.

          Lots of nice trails from the Seward Highway headed out of Anchorage. Alos out in Butte you can climb Bodenberg Butte. Do the steep side rather than the maintained trail You'll love the view.
          Hunt Ethically. Respect the Environment.
