  • A scenic drive into the mountains reveals a piece of Alaska's true past. The ruins of a traditional sourdough goldmine is here, preserved for all to see and experience. You might even find some gold. The tours of the mineshafts are amazing!
  • Great place to visit during the summer. Buried in snow during the winter. The tour was fun, too.
  • Hatchers Pass is a great experience and should not be missed. The directions on this site, however, are worthless. The directions were to a location in Wasilla!!!!
  • This park is just perfect. Just an hr and a half away from Anchorage and it offers numerous trails around it - both for families and advance-level hikers alike. While enjoying the view of the Talkeetna mountains, you can also get to learn a lot about the gold mine's history.
  • Incredibly breathtaking views, simple hiking. Good fun for the whole family!
