Our B&B is located next to the Chugach National Forest and we would like to share our passion for hiking the great trails around the Girdwood area with you. Girdwood is located in the northernmost temperate rainforest and you can hike beneath the dense spruce and hemlock canopy or work your way up above tree line to the alpine meadows and the many wild flowers and views of the Chugach Mountains.

Hiking is a great way to experience and see Alaska. We find most of our guests don't hike because of a lack of experience hiking in a wilderness environment and fear of the wildlife such as bears and moose that populate our area. Our guides are all very knowledgeable with much experience hiking in our region. They know the area well, promising to give you a safe and memorable experience.

Customizing our hikes to the ability of our guest is a key to enjoying the experience. In order to customize a hike we need to discuss with you your ability and goals for your hike. We can provide leisurely, relatively flat hikes which let you feel part of the rain forest or very strenuous hikes that get you up to the pass with beautiful alpine meadows and great views of the surrounding mountains. We also can provide packable lunches so you can enjoy a memorable meal on the trail on longer hikes.

Hidden Creek B&B is operating under a special use permit with the Chugach National Forest.
