Our National Heritage Area bridges Cook Inlet and Prince William Sound via mountains, glacial valleys, and plentiful productive rivers. Throughout this landscape are communities and stories, both of which connect us to our past and future. Fish camps, mining claims, and railroad roadhouses helped shape the home, work, and play spaces of today.
Our Heritage Area is nestled between magnificent mountains in the southwest corridor of Alaska. This area is rich in the history of miners searching for gold, natives enjoying their ancient culture, and has an abundance of hiking and biking trails.
