Large Campbell Tract Loop: Round trip 4 mile
Lynx – Coyote – Viewpoint – Moose Track Trails.
From the parking lot, cross the road and enter Lynx trail. This 2 person-wide flat trail goes through the woods behind the BLM building. The trail crosses a wider trail (Lore Road Trail) and become a single track trail. The trail further continues 1/4 mile and intersects with wider Coyote Trail. Take right of the Coyote Trail. At 1/8th of the distance, take a left Viewpoint Trail. The Viewpoint trail takes gradual up-slope for half mile. At the top of the slope you will see Chugach mountain in front of you. At this point, trail forks: one straight down and another on left. Whichever trail you take, both come to the same location. Continue this main trail for another 1 mile, and you will reach a bridge of the Campbell Airstrip Trailhead. During salmon run season, you will see red Chinook and coho salmon heading for spawning. Continue going this wide trail, or you can walk a nature trail along the Campbell creek. About 1/2 mile from the bridge, there is a trail on left that goes to Campbell Creek Science Center Parking lot. Take this trail and take a right trail just before reaching the parking lot. The trail is Moose Track Trail. If the trail become grassy, you are on the wrong trail. The Moose Track Trail is a nice well maintained two-person wide trail going along the road to the Science Center. About a mile of walking through woods, you will be back to the Smoke Jumper Trailhead.
