Our trip begins with a scenic flight out of McCarthy that crosses braided Alaskan rivers, scenic valleys and mountain peaks, before dropping into the Bremner valley. We'll hike from the airstrip to the site of a former gold mining camp where we'll set up our base. From here we can go off hiking in any direction for day tours to high mountain lakes, canyons and alpine ridges. There is plenty of Alaskan history in this area too.

Down in the valley we can explore the ruins of old gold mining operations that were active in the thirties and forties. One of our side hikes may be to follow the remains of the old aquaduct to the lake that was the source for the water that powered the hydro plant in the valley below. The variety of the surrounding terrain gives us a wide range of hiking possibilities. There are also some wonderful spots tucked away in the hills that make great overnight destinations including a lovely lake surrounded by dramatic cliffs rising 1500 feet above us.

We'll spend our last night at the lake and take a hike up to the pass for stunning views of peaks both near and far. There are plenty of terrific photo opportunities in this richly varied area.
