There is so much to see and do in Alaska but if you have time check out the natural beauty found in this park. Taking a stroll affords 100s of photo ops.

Nice hiking trails with lots of opportunities to see wildlife - bear, moose or sheep. Impressive overlook at Glen Alps of the Anchorage area. Can see the mountains of Lake Clark National Park to the west. One of Alaska's finest state parks.
