Great walk when we went. Closed now because of wild fire

The last trail marker is not labeled correctly, if you want to go to the peak and see some nice panoramic views of the ocean take the left trail! That's about a 2 mile hike I would say moderate, there are done strap parts.

Okay so the way me and my friend got up was a much more intense and much quicker way up but the view from the top is incredible. It doesn't matter how you get there just as long as you get to the top to see the amazing view of Anchorage and the mountains across the water. I highly recommend taking this hike

The minute you start hiking it's amazing. there are two bridges to walk over that aren't high at all. the path can be a bit scary. kinda steep (have good boots). the view is amazing!!!!!
