Carter Lake Trail

  Took the hike from the Seward highway and it was a very well maintained trail and good parking lot with even bathrooms. The hike was very intense and switch backed multiple times. Tiny streams cross your path. Once up top it is beautiful. After some time walking threw the alpine, you come across a trail which to the left take you to the lake and to the right takes you to the bear box and camping area. It's a stocked lake so bring your rod.

In
    Alaska you never run out of outdoors fun. Carter Lake Trail is a trail quite far from Anchorage but hiking is such a fun thing to do and this is a great place to do that. Trail River - Chugach National Forest is a fine local campground,
and if you want a little side visit, try Moose Pass. Carter Lake Trail is a magnificent location to visit for more than one day, Ptarmigan Creek - Chugach National Forest is a magnificent location to camp nearby. Sixmile River is a great whitewater spot in close proximity to Carter Lake Trail, and a journey to Kenai Fjords National Park is worthwhile.
