We are taking another trip to Alaska this July (2014) and would welcome any recommendations for a 2-3 day backpacking trip. Two years ago we did the Crow Pass Trail and we're looking for another point to point trip of a similar length. I have been reading about the Ship Creek Valley Trail but am a bit concerned about the mud, overgrowth and lack of a clear trail to follow. I'm confident of my map and compass skills and it's obvious that one simply has to follow the creek but I figured I'd ask for some advice and recommendations of this and any other trails of a similar length with some variety of terrain and great views.l. Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.
