Matanuska Peak

Matanuska Valley


Began this hike at the McRoberts Creek Trailhead, then take the left fork and follow the trail up to Lazy Mountain. From Lazy Mtn, I traversed the ridgeline to Matanuska Peak. The trail becomes faint as the approach up Mat Peak begins but the route is straight forward. I came out on the McRoberts trail, which follows the valley floor.

Important Information

There is a lot of scree on this hike, I would recommend wearing gaiters.
