  • This was a wonderful day trip that we should have taken a long time ago. Wonder walking paths and amazing views. Spectacular photo ops. I highly recommend visiting this historical mine.

  • Stunning location and a great place to hike around. The exhibits are interesting and there are plenty of informational signs as you walk around. My one complaint is that, for some unknown reason, we were not allowed to drive up to the parking lot right next to the mine but rather had to park in the lot a mile down the road.
  • 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 landscape.. wasn't too crowded.. but the vistor center was closed..
  • 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!!!!
  • Great place to visit during the summer. Buried in snow during the winter. The tour was fun, too.
