New visitor-friendly features installed at Glen Alps trailhead

To provide some new options for park visitors, Chugach State Park has installed an electronic fee payment station and a couple of webcams at the popular Glen Alps trailhead.
The electronic fee station is located on the northeast end of the Glen Alps parking lot and it began operating this week. Similar to the electronic fee stations installed in some downtown Anchorage parking areas, the fee station accepts major credit cards. It will not accept cash. Payment can be made for up to seven consecutive days. If operating the fee station proves to be practical and cost effective, it will be maintained for year-round service.

Park officials are also making final preparations to go online with two webcams that will allow potential visitors to view the Glen Alps trailhead via the Internet. One webcam will be pointed at the parking lot and the other will face eastward up the South Fork Campbell Creek valley. The webcams' main purpose is to help visitors assess how crowded the trailhead is in real time before having to venture all the way up Toilsome Drive. Other options for hiking nearby are available at the park's Upper Huffman and Prospect Heights trailheads.
