Alaganik Slough Trail

Difficulty

Easy

Located at Mile 17 of the Copper River Highway. An accessible boardwalk leads visitors to stunning views of both the expansive wetlands of the Copper River Delta and the surrounding mountains. A wide variety of wetland animals including trumpeter swans, moose, brown bear, and shorebirds can be seen in the area, especially during the spring and fall.

The first half of this trail is paved with geoblock, so that it does not have a negative impact on the wetlands below. Midway, a split-log bridge is there for stream crossing. The last half of the trail is boardwalk. This is a popular fishing spot in August.
