The Glen Highway is great for a scenic drive and along the way, guests can break up the drive for a hike on Pinochle Circle Road. The two-mile section of the former Glen Highway has no traffic and is a nice, scenic and hilly hike. For those searching for adrenaline, try climbing a glacier. There's climbing a mountain, and then there is climbing an ice mountain. MICA Guides Glacier Trekking and Ice Climbing offers short, guided hikes or longer treks to explore the glacier in all its grandeur. Regardless of guests' climbing experience or ability, they will come feeling fulfilled and inspired. Lastly, if guests are in good shape, be sure to hike the Lion's Head Trail, famous throughout the state and with panoramic views of the Matanuska River, Caribou Creek with the Talkeetna Mountain Range behind.
