We drove to Hatcher Pass from Anchorage on a summer day, since we didn't have any scheduled activities that day. It was a beautiful drive. Little Susitna River was beautiful, with turn-outs where you can park and go down to the big boulders in the river. The gravel road leading up to the pass was very navigable and lead to some great views.
Lots of short trails leading up to the hills for kids and adults to enjoy and get 360 degree views from, and Summit lake was beautiful as well.
Wasilla, Palmer are close by, so I would recommend packing a picnic lunch before you drive up there.
