If raw and rugged mountainous landscape and expansive valleys of colorful tundra are your vision of beauty then Hatcher Pass in Alaska can’t be missed! Take a drive along the scenic 60-mile Hatcher Pass Road with plenty of opportunities for hiking, sightseeing and photography along the way. Go back in time to Alaska’s gold rush days and explore the decaying remnants of an abandoned mining town. Backpack to the most picturesque red cabin set amid towering, jagged peaks of the Talkeetna Mountains. Visit a seemingly idealistic and charming Alaska town perfectly framed by the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountain Ranges. Hatcher Pass is certainly Alaska’s lesser-known gem!
