Resurrection Pass Trail, located on the Seward Ranger District, Chugach National Forest, is a road-accessible trail popular year round. Its popularity is due to the significant amount of diverse opportunities available, including hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, camping, scenic vistas, waterfalls, wildlife viewing, and access to lakes and streams. Day hikes and multi-day trips are possible, depending on hikers' desires and time available. Five Forest Service public recreation cabins are also available along the trail at miles 7, 9, 9.5, 13 and 18, making a "hut-to-hut" experience a popular trip opportunity.
Resurrection Pass Trail traverses through spruce and aspen forests at lower elevations, and climbs into higher alpine tundra with lush wildflowers. Spectacular scenery abounds. The surrounding topography of steep and narrow canyons, sub-alpine vegetation of low shrubs, grasses, and wildflowers, and accessible ridgelines make for exciting hiking opportunities. Elevations reach 2,400 feet. Wildlife includes moose, bears, wolves, Dall sheep, mountain goats and grouse. Fishing opportunities for Dolly Varden, rainbow trout, grayling, salmon, whitefish, burbot, and lake trout are available in some of the nearby lakes and streams.
