America's Largest National Park At 13.2 million acres which is bigger than the country of Switzerland, Wrangell-St. Elias stretches from one of the tallest peaks in North America, Mount St. Elias (18,008) to the ocean. Yet within this wild landscape, people have been living off the land for centuries and still do today. The park is a rugged yet inviting place to experience your own adventure.

This hike was steep but at a good moderate pace. Beginning is nothing but just forest sceneries and then you'll hit up a creek. Then it gets a bit difficult because you would have to cross all the rocks and the creeks as you get further out. Be careful! I actually slipped twice into the creek and got all wet. It was a nice walk and the scenery isn't too bad. It was just fun overall but it's pretty difficult.

Beautiful hike out to the cabin, which we stayed at for 5 days. Has amazing views and is quite peaceful and serene. Once at the cabin the trail ends and the true hiking begins. We went at the end of May and I look forward to returning.

Beautiful hike

on Caribou Creek Trail

Beautiful fall hike. The terrain was easy to cross and the footpath well maintained. You have to walk from the parking area to the trailhead on the road, but since there is no traffic it is not a problem.

East, not much fun on a cloudy day as there is no view.

Absolutely beautiful. Easy hike through wilderness, over a waterfall to the base of the glacier. **Make sure you bring crampons if you plan on climbing around on the glacier!!!! it is cold hard ice and I saw too many people slipping about. It's in McCarthy with the nearest town being 3 hours away.

I liked this trail really great views and leads you up a to a pass. You do have to walk with the creek up so there is not a official trail there but it is fun hike up.

I did a trail maintenance on this trail. And when it is clear sky's it is a nice view of the mountains. It is flat in the beginning and then leads gradually up the creek. Can get muddy in some parts. But the cabin at the end is nice and a good place to spend a night.

This is in Copper River region, but over 100 miles southeast of Copper Center within the Wrangell St.Elias National Park. From the footbridge in Mc Carthy, hike on the road a half mile east, head north. Around a turn to the airport, less than a mile, take Old Wagon trail on left. It parallels the road.
Total about 4.5 miles to the mines in Kennicott.
Go past the mill buildings along the wagon trail on east side of glaciers. Cross two strams, with footbridges, to hike to abandoned Erie mines, another few miles.
Good mountain biking for first 6 miles, gentle slope up. Then, becomes too narrow with glacial till and sharp inclines off trail. Access trails to climb on glacier. At Jumbo Creek can get under glacier, but it's hazardous on warm afternoons especially.
