Sheridan Mountain Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

This 2.8 mile, moderately-steep trail begins in a spruce-hemlock forest and follows a stream that provides resting spots with views of waterfalls. Midway, the landscape transitions into a shrub habitat before opening into a small picturesque alpine basin. From this basin rock cairns guide the hiker to the top of a nearby ridge that offers commanding views of the Sheridan and Sherman Glaciers, as well as the Copper River Delta. This trail has intermittent boardwalk covering much of the wet, muddy areas in the lower sections, and little tread work on the upper sections. The first 1.9 miles is a “17(b)” easement.*

Length: 2.8 miles
