Crow Pass Trail: 6/16/18 Trail Update - A few more people have trickled over the trail. Still reporting snow up in the pass. Some post-holing knee+ deep in spots. Word from Chugach National Forest is that late season avalanche conditions still exist. You can check out their webpage for a report (https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/chugach/home/…). Ford site was knee deep as of yesterday. However, with recent rains/snow melt, be prepared for anything from knee to waist high. Rest of trail in ok shape. No log for crossing at Thunder Gorge or Icicle Creek, so be prepared to get your feet wet at those crossings.
Please note: These are reports from trail users. We can not and do not guarantee trail conditions on any given day/time. Trail conditions change daily, especially the river depth at the ford site. Be prepared for anything from knee to waist deep. If you are not comfortable crossing, turn around and go back the way you came. You should be prepared for any kind of weather (rain, snow, sun, fog) and wildlife (bears/moose). Always carry a map for navigation, the trail is not marked. Trail condition contacts: Eagle River Nature Center 907-694-2108, Chugach National Forest 907-783-3242, Chugach State Park 907-345-5014.
