Trail Hiking

Salmon Grove's riverside campground is located on the Klutina River confluence trail that leads downstream to the Copper River. The moderate hiking trail down to the Copper River follows the south bank of the Klutina River to the Copper River. Depending on water levels the hike may require waders or rain boots because you will have to wade across several side channels before a short uphill jaunt that quickly leads back to the river. Enjoy breathtaking views, wildlife viewing and fishing opportunities along the way.
