Bikerafting Alaska’s Portage Pass

Bikerafting Alaska’s Portage Pass

We didn’t originally plan on riding over Portage Pass to Whittier – why would we? At two miles long, the Portage Pass Trail is shorter than the paddle across Portage Lake to get to it. The original plan was to spend a few hours packrafting to Portage...
