A mile past the Solomon Gulch Fish Hatchery on Dayville Rd, this 1.7-mile trail (one way) is a steep uphill hike on an unremarkable gravel road (underneath lies the Alaska Pipeline).

At a fork at the top, a left turn leads to an overlook with views of Port Valdez, while a right turn meanders up to Solomon Lake, whose dam is the source of 80% of Valdez’ power.
