Take This Gorgeous Alpine Trail To Crystal Lakes In Alaska

Crow Pass is a popular place to hike in Girdwood, but the full Crow Pass Trail is a 21-mile one-way and takes several days of backpacking. Luckily, the Crystal Lakes are just three miles up the pass and make a fantastic destination for a day trip. There is a public use cabin available for reservation if you’d like to spend longer in the fresh mountain air. Head into the Chugach Mountains to try this trail if you haven’t yet. The views are postcard worthy with Dall sheep and mountain goats, alpine meadows and turquoise pools.
