Resurrection Pass Trail

Resurrection Pass Trail

The Resurrection Pass Trail is a gem. Running from Hope to Cooper Landing, this 38 mile route is probably Alaska’s best backpacking trail, but it’s also great for mountain biking, snowmachining, skiing, snowshoeing and running. On our show, we’ll talk about a week-long hike with kids and a running event that does the whole thing in a single day. Along the way, we’ll provide the information you need to do the Resurrection yourself.

KSKA: Thursday, August 27, at 2 and 8 p.m.
