Nice hike, 5.7 mi one-way from the trailhead. Mixed terrain. Beautiful views of Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm. Easy hike for some. Moderate hike for others.
Wife, daughter and I walked two miles in and two out and enjoyed these trails. We walked and got to see a couple different environments of grass and berries to wooded area. It is a nice and easy trail and easily visible to follow and stay on.
Felt longer than 5 miles each way. Nice hike along the coast. Not big elevation changes but great views and a good trail. Sometimes overgrown. Great camping spots at the end.
Nice flat hike. Not to challenging, but that last mile back to the campground seemed a lot longer than it did headed out.
Very nice trail, not very steep except for some sections where it crosses steams. Very windy at the end.
Attempted to mountain bike this trail as a novice. Impossible due to roots, rocks & mud. Walked the bike along the uphill trail until I gave up & walked it back down. Beautiful, rigorous trail is perfect for hiking, but only recommend biking it if you're a skilled rider.
An extremely technical ride. I would say trail is 90% ridable for an advanced rider and more like 70% for intermediate. Most difficult sections and large root fields on an uphill. Most of the trail fallows the bluffs with a steep drop off on one side. Roots and boulder fields are usually slick do to the amount of rainfall in the area. Beautiful Ride!!
Gull rock a nice hike and great place to spend the night with views of Anchorage city lights.
