Bear Creek

Bear Creek is located approximatley 17 miles from Valdez and is the first canyon to the left after leaving Keystone Canyon towards Glennallen. A bridge spanning the canyon entrance indicates you've found the correct location. Parking options are limited and one must always be understanding that DOT trucks constantly plow this segment of the highway. Though a good hike away, parking does exist approximately 1.5 miles east in a plowed parking lot. The route Rain Check, known by many as the route to get on when avi danger is high, is the first large piece of ice in this canyon.
