POWER CREEK CABIN, AK
part ofChugach National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewPower Creek Cabin, in the Chugach National Forest, is located 4.2 miles from Power Creek Trailhead, which begins approximately 6.9 miles north of Cordova, Alaska. The trail provides scenic terrain for hikers.
Access to the cabin is by hiking only. It is a 4.2-mile hike along Power Creek Trail. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
Dense forests, glacier-fed streams, valleys and rocky peaks define the landscape around the cabin, providing habitat for an abundance of wildlife. At an elevation of 500 feet, Power Creek Cabin is nestled in a spruce-hemlock forest above Power Creek Valley, where visitors can view wildflowers and wildlife. Steep mountains rise from the valley floor. Mountain goats, brown bear, black bear, moose and waterfowl are all found in the area.
Power Creek Valley is a great spot for hikers. Both Power Creek Trail and Crater Lake Trail begin just outside Cordova and can be hiked separately, or as part of a 12.5-mile loop. The trail meanders through spruce-hemlock forests, traverses a difficult exposed ridge and treats hikers to scenic views of Orca Inlet, Eyak Lake and the Delta. Time spent at Crater Lake is worth the effort.
The 12x20-ft, rustic cabin has a loft and a covered deck. It is equipped with wooden bunkbeds without mattresses that sleep up to eight guests. The cabin is furnished with a table, wood stove for heat, axe, splitting maul, saw, rainwater catchment barrel and an outdoor pit toilet.
