The trail back toward portage will provide you with the most amazing views of the inlet and surrounding area. You can do an out and back, or as we like to do when we have visitors, leave a car at McHugh and start at Portage. The hike is not overly difficult, but it can be very muddy in some sections after a lot of rain. You can head the other direction, or to Rabbit Lake, but those trails are a bit more difficult. Note well that you will very likely come across moose (know the warning signs of an angry moose), and there was a LOT of bear sign on the trail the last time we went - it's been warm and they are not bedded down yet. Bear spray at hand is a good idea. And PLEASE - pick up after your dog!

On a beautiful sunny warm morning, we were travelling from Anchorage to Seward, on the way we made a stop at McHugh Creek. There is a parking lot beside the high way, or you can drive up a short winding road to another parking lot, from there you can see the Seward Highway,the Turnagain Arm and the sand bars. A short trail lead to a water falls. No bugs bothered us, it was a relaxing stroll. Although we didn't stay long, but it sure worth the stop. Happy Travelling!
