From the Seward Highway take the Portage Valley Road as if going to Whittier. Pass the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center and go through the first tunnel just after passing over Portage Creek. Immediately after passing through the tunnel on the right one can find a number of descent water ice and mixed routes. Make sure to park the your vehicle well out of the way of traffic.
