Head up the Winner Creek Gorge for more mountain views and access to alpine hiking. The trail is steep as it climbs through the rainforest, but the views are worth the effort on a clear day. Packrafters use this trail to access the 20-mile River Valley for a fun float out to the Seward Hwy. If that's your goal, plan on a full day of hiking and floating or, better yet, do the trip in two days so you can spend more time on the hike.
