Open fires are prohibited except in designated rings or camp stoves. Most of the access points for this trail require a $5 day use fee or an Alaska State Park pass.

Description

This trail leaves from the Prospect Heights Trailhead area and provides easy access a number of trail options as it spans 14 miles over Powerline Pass to Upper Indian Valley Trailhead into mountain hiking. Head towards Glen Alps and tear up the elevation. I stopped at the confluence of the trails and headed back but you can literally hike all day and night during the summer and never hike the same trail.
