I am planning a trip to Lake Clark National Park (it doesn’t have to be Lake Clark but it seems the easiest to get to from Anchorage) and am looking for some local knowledge.
I am planning to spend a week in the backountry early August. I am having a map sent down so I can scout a route. I may purchase a packraft if funds permit me. If I have a packraft I’m sure I would look for a different route than just hiking. I am a moderate kayaker so wouldn’t want to run anything crazy.
If I was hiking, I would want to hike maybe 7 miles per day. So a total of around 50 miles ( I have heard the goings a bit tougher than in the lower 48, is that a feasible distance? I usually like to do an average of 8-12 on trails in the lower 48)
It seems like Telaquana Lake, Turquoise Lake, Twin Lakes, and Snipe Lake and pretty popular. I would be dropped off one spot and piucked up a week later. Obviously I like flora and fauna, and have hiked in Grizzly country before (never alone though!!) None of my mates want to come on this trip so it’s just me. I am an amateur photographer so the chance to get some wildlife and landscape shots would be great. Should I have reservations about travelling alone there (river crossings etc) Thanks, Dave
