Sulphide Gulch in Detail.

Getting There

To access Sulphide Gulch you may park along the Richardson Highway around the 6-7 mile markers and float across the Lowe River and begin climbing up or along the gulch. Or from the Richardson Highway turn on to Dayville Road. After crossing the Lowe River there is a large pullout on the Northwestern side of the road.

From the pullout, cross the road and follow the trail under power lines. It will lead to the Alyeska pipeline. It's about 30ft over to the pipe-line. Stay on the pipeline for a couple miles and it will cross Sulphide Gulch.


extends SW from Washbowl Basin, 5 mi. SE of Valdez; Chugach Mts.

Sulphide Gulch is 2.5 miles long and extends from the southwest of Washbowl Basin, in the Chugach Mountains. It is a narrow canyon with steep walls usually around 100ft high. A creek runs through the gulch and in many places moving up through the gulch will require wading or swimming. Water levels may vary depending on the season and may be dangerous to navigate.


Naming: Sulphide Gulch was a local given name published in the 1950's by the USGS.
