Does any one know any berry picking places that are not as well known in Anchorage? Someone told me about a spot called the rabbit creek trail near the other side of flat top but I can't find the directions to get there. I'm looking for something I can do while pregnant with a 4 year old hiking and a 2 year old on my back to get there that isn't where everyone goes and will be picked through like Flat top or Arctic Valley. I like to be able to get a lot of berries.

Can you get on base? there are some spots in the power line access that is flat and easy to traverse.

From what I have seen the blue berries in Anchorage are thin this year. But the Cranberries loved the rain!

Pretty sure they meant Rabbit Lake trail. It goes up the back side of Flattop. It's up Upper Dearmoun. Turn R on Canyon Rd & drive as far as you can.

Seems like most people go to Arctic Valley/Rendezvous Peak for berries. We got a ton along Powerline & Winner Creek but I bet they're getting picked over.

Good luck
