Just north of Anchorage toward Eagle River is a turn-off for the Arctic Valley Road. One mile up the Arctic Valley is a trailhead that takes you to a point, which offers 360-degree views. This 6.4 mile uphill climb (an increase of 2,050 feet) is a graded road, off limits to vehicles and popular for hikers and bikers. Be sure to bring extra water with you for this excursion. Additionally, remember to bring warm clothes for the trip down and elevation-related temperature changes. There is no fee.
