Hiking all the trails in Alaska (AK) would take several lifetimes. From the rocky coastline to the deep forests filled with hemlock, cedar, pine, and spruce, there is something for every hiker to enjoy.
The last frontier takes campers back to nature with a pristine and majestic wilderness that is unique to Alaska. The frontier state boasts 2 National Forests, Tongass National Forest and Chugach National Forest, and over 100 State Parks, all brimming with hiking trails and other recreation opportunities. Hike to cascading waterfalls or rivers filled with Alaskan King Salmon, and keep your eyes open for wildlife like moose, bears, and fox too!
Head out on the Denali Highway for a scenic drive to Denali National Park, and enjoy the endless hiking opportunities that exist there. Maybe backpacking under the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, near Fairbanks, AK, or hunting down some hot springs in the vast wilderness that is Alaska sounds more appealing. Even the major cities like Anchorage and Juneau have plenty to offer the outdoor recreationist.
