Directions: Located 23 miles northwest of Juneau at mile marker 27.3 Glacier Highway. Access is via the 5 1/2 mile Amalga Trail. The trailhead is on north end of Eagle River Bridge, and follows upstream on north side of Eagle River to the cabin. The trail is fairly strenuous but with little total elevation gain. It is not recommended for cross-country skiing because of bumpy terrain, so snowshoes are advised in the winter. Allow for 3-1/2 to 4 hours to hike to the cabin carrying a full overnight pack. The trail continues on another 2 miles past the cabin toward Eagle Glacier.
