About Gold Mint Hut Trailhead

90 minutes north of Anchorage on Fishhook-Willow Road, climbs some 2,900 feet as it follows Little Susitna River back up to its headwaters at Mint Glacier. It passes beneath walls of granite-spired peaks and ridges on its way up to Mint Hut Cabin, a first-come, first-serve cabin where you can spend the night.

You can even spend the night at the cabin if you can find room. If not, many spots nearby make for very comfortable tent sites. Then you can fall asleep amid a great circle of mountains after watching the last golden sunlight pass from their summits.

You can usually find a spot

Another small campground nestled in Hatchers Pass. This one does not have an RV size limit and is more like a parking lot. You can not beat the views. There is a per vehicle charge of $5 for overnight parking here. There are is little separation between you and everyone else but there is a restroom that are better than a bush.

Lots of hiking from here and in the late summer you will see several berry pickers at the higher elevations. This lot was only 20% full on a Saturday at the end of July. Cell Service: no Internet: no 2020 Cost: $15 per vehicle Distance from Anchorage: 59 miles Bug Factor (1 minimal to 10 too many to enjoy): 4
