Johnson Pass Trail

  Johnson Pass is a spectacular mt. biking trail. It is fairly remote and many days I don't see another person on it. Lots of streams, but all have bridges. Bears are often at river crossings fishing for salmon. Be careful! Know how to travel in bear country or consider a guide. I know a place out of Seward who does guided hikes and mt. bike tours on Johnson's Pass. Check out www.sewardbiketours.com.

As a Kenai Peninsula hiker and resident, I can say that Johnson Pass Trail is a winner. It's a relatively easy, well-established trail, through beautiful alpine terrain
(especially on the north side of the pass). I've done the traverse both as a long 23-mile day hike, and as a 2-day backpack. There are no established campgrounds on the trail - make your own site and leave no trace. Water is available in streams and lakes pretty much all along the trail - but filter or treat all Alaska's water. I recommend going from North to South, especially if you do it as a one-day mega hike. It's also a favorite for mountain bikers.

You can't spend all your time indoors you need to get out once in a while and Johnson Pass Trail in Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska is a perfect place for getting out. Johnson Pass Trail is not very near Anchorage at all but hiking along this trail is very enjoyable.
