Seward Highway Falls, Alaska

Seward Highway Falls in May 2011

There are a number of waterfalls along the Seward Highway, especially near Chugach State Park. This waterfall here is located further south than the others, and is rather unexpected. I had written down the GPS coordinates, though I seem to have misplaced them.

The falls are found right near a large gravel parking area, and very easy to view once you find them. They are not particularly tall, maybe about 15-20′? I didn’t spend a whole lot of time visiting the falls since I was needed to arrive in Seward by a certain time. Still, it’s a simple stop on the side of the road.


  1. Head south from Anchorage along the Seward Highway. It’s found further south, past Chugach State Park. I think the falls are past the split toward Whittier.
  2. As your heading toward Seward, the falls will be on your right.
  3. They are found on the far right of a “parking” area, as I’m not really sure why there’s such a large cleared area off of the side of the road.

Accessibility: 10/10 (Easy)
Height: ~15′
Length of Hike: Roadside
