Hiking in Alaska differs from hiking in the more developed part of the United States since Alaska has few maintained trails. Fortunately, many of the best hiking destinations are above timberline where no trails are needed. The trick is finding access routes for getting above the brush line-and that's where this book has the answers. [This book] is a guide to routes and trails leading the hiker, skier and boater to some of Southcentral Alaska's finest wild, beautiful back country. The trips are chosen to offer a balance among woodlands and tundra hikes, some float trips, and several winter trips for playing in the snow. There's something for all skill levels, from short jaunts to treks far from the road system, three to five days in length, requiring wilderness experience. Every hike is described in detail, and highlights such information as mileage, elevation gain, best season, maps to take along."
