This is one of the most beautiful river hikes you’ll ever take in your life. The trail’s beauty is nearly mystic. White and blue water, icy cold, is forced violently through a narrow gorge at times only 15 meters wide.

To get there, start behind Hotel Alyeska and walk the trail until you’re going the continent’s northernmost rain forest. You’ll eventually see the gorge, and cross the bridge over to the other side, the river thundering below. Less than five minutes later, you get to the Hand Tram, a metal cage ropeway traversing over Glacier Creek. Even if you’re not scared of heights this is incredibly thrilling, a hundred feet over a frothing river. Crow Creek Road is next, and so is the Crow Creek Historic Gold Mine. If you head back at this point, it will have a more than two hours round trip.

How To reach Winner Creek Trail by Public Transport

  • Drive to the Tram Station behind Alyeska Resort. Hike to the hand tram.
