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.
- Base camping and trekking while exploring an historic gold mine

- Day hiking on lush green tundra in the Chugach Mountains
