Byron Peak is a 4,590 feet (1,399 m) mountain in the U.S. state of Alaska, located in Chugach National Forest.

Location

Byron Peak is located in the Chugach National Forest at the head of a short, steep-walled valley, and rises above Portage Lake.

Outdoor Recreation

Due to relative ease of access and proximity to the major population centers of Alaska, Byron Peak and the surrounding area is a popular destination for mountain climbers, hikers, and, occasionally, skiers. The Byron Glacier Trail is a short and easy walk to the base of Byron Peak, and offers visitors panoramic views of steep glaciated mountains and Portage Lake. Continuing upward from the floor of the valley toward the peak requires technical skill and climbing equipment.
