Beautiful Sykes Hot Springs

Posted by on Dec 12, 2015 in Adventure | Comments Off on Beautiful Sykes Hot Springs

Sykes Hot Springs is one of my favorite places to take first time backpackers who are reasonably fit. The destination has some nice hot springs and a trout filled stream. The hike is pretty. The trip is long enough that people have a sense they have accomplished something, but short enough that it’s not overwhelming for most.
Sykes-Hot-Springs-The trail is easy enough to follow that no maps are needed and there is little to no risk of getting lost. There are a number of clear milestones, so people can easily see that they are making progress. The conditions tend to be moderate year round so there is never a bad time to go.

Great Experience to Walk on a Glacier – Herbert Glacier, Alaska

Posted by on Dec 2, 2015 in Adventure | Comments Off on Great Experience to Walk on a Glacier – Herbert Glacier, Alaska

Herbert Glacier Trail is a 5 mile out and back trail (10 mile round trip) located near Juneau, Alaska and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking/biking and is accessible from May until October.
Herbert-Glacier-As glaciers retreat, plants move in to occupy the recently exposed land in a process called succession. This entire trail is a classic example of Ice Age succession, since you’ll pass from mature forest to scrub trees to rocky moraines as you approach the glacier. Herbert-Glacier-3There are picturesque views along the Herbert River, and while the hike is mostly flat and one of the area’s easier walks, it’s long—about 5 hours round-trip.  After four miles, the trail ends at a braided stream and gravel bar under Herbert Glacier. Herbert-Glacier-1If the water is low you can stand on the sand bar and look up at the ice. It’s truly a dramatic sight. Herbert-Glacier-7
