Let me start out by saying that the drive on Glenn Highway along the Matanuska River was more beautiful than the hike itself (picture above). I had planned to hike Lion’s Head Trail, however I learned from the locals that this trail is not maintained in the winter/early spring. So my next attempt was for the Squaw Creek Trail. This trail was slightly maintained, however is was impossible for ME to determine what was the trail, and what was snowmachine tracks. So I decided to play it safe and stay on the Old Highway Trail.
For more information, I suggest stopping by the Sheep Mountain Lodge (mile 113.5) for local advise on trail conditions, as there is not much information online. The picture below was taken near the Squaw Creek Trailhead, which you have to hike to in order to access.
This blog is simply a log of my personal experiences. It is not a travel guide, a trail guide, any other sort of a guide, and it is not intended to give information for replication.
