Wolverine Peak Trail starts just east of Anchorage and climbs 1,080m over nearly five miles. From its summit, you get a panoramic view of Anchorage, the 180-mile-long Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountain Range, which overlooks the city.
STAY OUT LATE
During the summer months, ‘You can be on top of the mountain at midnight and still run home in the light,’ says runner Matt Shryock (pictured). This photo was taken around 10pm.
Shryock recommends always carrying a light windbreaker. ‘The weather can change immediately, even on a sunny day,’ he says.
It’s not uncommon to see moose, lynx, and black bears in this area.
