Gold Creek

Gold Creek is a stream that flows into Port Valdez several miles west of town. The Shoup Bay Trail crosses Gold Creek; the creek divides Section A (Valdez to Gold Creek) from Section B (Gold Creek to Shoup Bay). A bridge is provided over the creek to allow hikers to cross safely.

Safety

"The Gold Creek riverbed is prone to flooding and the stream channel changes often. At times, the Valdez-side entrance to the Gold Creek Bridge can be difficult to reach," Valdez Parks & Recreation

Bear-resistant storage boxes are provided away from the camping area for campers to safely store food in.
