Mike L Hiking Skolai Basecamp

The Bremner Mine is a 40-minute bush plane flight south of McCarthy, and is nestled in an alpine pass between the Chitina and Bremner Rivers. Designated the Bremner Historic District, this abandoned gold mine provides a unique glimpse into what it was like to be part of the great “gold rush” to Alaska a century ago.

Day hikes head out in any direction; south down Golconda Creek to scamper to ridges for panoramic views of the Chugach Mountains, or north towards Monahan Creek and the shores of a sky-blue alpine lake with views of the high Wrangells.

No camping experience is needed. People of all abilities are invited to visit this remote wilderness.

Trip Highlights

  • Base camping and trekking while exploring an historic gold mine
  • Breathtaking views of the Wrangell Mountains and Bagley Icefield
  • Day hiking on lush green tundra in the Chugach Mountains
  • Exploring high ridges, alpine lakes, and wildflower-filled valleys

“A fantastic experience — wild Alaska at its best!”
