The trailhead has outdoor toilets, picnic shelters and an informational kiosk. One thing you’ll notice that we don’t have is garbage cans. Please pack out all of your garbage in order to keep from attracting bears. We have looked in to bear proof garbage cans, but there is a lot of experience that shows that if they fill up before they can be emptied, people just stack their garbage around the container. Which defeats the purpose of the bear proof can! Please do not through garbage in the outdoor toilets, as it clogs the pumper.
Please support this access to Arctic Valley and Chugach State Park by paying your user fee. The fee station is located at the kiosk in the upper parking lot. See the "Parking" page for more information.
