Palmer Alaska is located in the Matanuska Susitna borough, often referred to by locals as the Mat-Su area or “The Valley”.
Palmer is 42 miles northeast of Anchorage off the Glenn Highway. It lies on the north shore of the Matanuska river, not far above tidewater, in a wide valley between the Talkeetna Mountains to the north and the Chugach Mountains to the south and east. Pioneer Peak rises over 6,000 feet (1,800 m) above the town, just a few miles south. East of Palmer is Lazy Mountain, and standing behind that is Matanuska Peak. Lazy Mountain, Matanuska Peak, and Pioneer Peak are all a part of the Chugach Range. North of Palmer are the Talkeetna Mountains. Hatcher Pass, a local favorite for hiking, is located in this mountain range about 22 mi (35 km) from Palmer.
