We pioneered this route in 2006 and found it to be perhaps Alaska’s most quintessential backpacking trip. In addition to the magical solitude and intimate beauty of Lake Clark National Park, this traverse also gives a comprehensive introduction to Alaska backcountry travel – float plane-only access, wide open tundra ridge hiking, icy river crossings, trekking on glaciers, and backpacking through trail-less wilderness. The route meanders southward through alpine regions of the Lake Clark Wilderness: from Telaquana Lake, past the rugged splendor of Turquoise Lake, and ten days later to a finish at Dick Proenneke’s log cabin on Twin Lakes.
