Cordova is an amazing little town, with great people and beautiful scenery. It does rain a lot and the weather can be very unpredictable so be prepared for anything.

A must see if you are in Alaska! I went there for a job interview and didn't want to leave. The views are incredible, and the berries grow right next to the gravel roads nd wildlife abound everywhere. My trip was during the salmon season, a lot of fisherman were also enjoying their stay - even when the fishing was... More

The views are just amazing and the nature is just amazing. You can stay there for hours upon hours and never want to leave. Cordova is an amazing place to visit for hiking and stunning beauty.

The hidden gem of Cordova! Well marked trails, scenic beauty and peace. We found the highways through the Forrest very well maintained all through the drive from Anchorage to the Kenai Penninsula!

Somehow, It is totally absent in the list of Cordova's attractions. May be, because it can easily compete with other glaciers in the area, and access to the glacier is absolutely free for tourists. Take a Sheridan Glacier side road from Copper River highway-left, till the parking area. Take a trail to the glacier. The glacier lake+icebergs view is gorgeous.... More

The friendly front desk at Orca Adventure Lodge had a list of all the hikes in the area. When we pressed him for a recommended hike he said his fav. was Heney Ridge Trail. So we did it. I highly recommend it because the first part is in thru a mossy rain forest that is so Japanese looking. The upper... More

I love this forest! Great hiking and fishing, and opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitat abound! Just remember, the animals are WILD and should never be approached, unlike some people do at other national forests or parks where they are more accustomed to people.

Chugach State Park is a recreational wonderland; the park holds some of Alaska’s most accessible camping, hiking and climbing. A lot of animals, such eagles, moose, grizzly bears, wolves and lynx can be spotted. Explorers will find more than 50 glaciers waiting inside the park. Go there
