South of Anchorage and north of Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula, the 10 mile Devils Pass trail is a local favorite with bear, moose and sheep. The first four miles have steep, uphill grades, slight decline after pass. Well maintained though may be wet/muddy in places. Snow along trail and at Devils Pass may persist into early summer. The out-and-back route eventually reaches the Resurrection Pass Trail after hiking trekking through boreal rain forests.
Trailhead is on west side of Seward Highway, Mile 39. Trail is closed to saddle/packstock from April 1-June 30 and closed to motorized vehicles year-round.
Overall, Devils Pass is the 10th most popular hiking trail of all 54 hikes in Alaska.
