Eagle River Nature Center
Just 40 minutes from Anchorage, yet so far away! Nature programs and hiking trails in magnificent mountain valley. Backcountry cabin and yurt rentals, wildlife viewing and start of Crow Pass Trail. The Eagle River Nature Center is operated by a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide connections to nature through interpretive education, resource protection and outdoor opportunities. The Nature Center is located within Chugach State Park – one of Alaska’s largest state parks and within 40 minutes driving distance from downtown Anchorage and 12 miles from Eagle River town. We are open year round, offering guided nature programs, over 10 miles of hiking trails, park information services, and overnight public use facilities (cabin and 3 yurts). We offer nature programs for children and adults each Saturday and Sunday at 2pm and free daily nature walks throughout the summer months. A parking fee of $5/vehicle supports the Nature Center. Most programs are free.
