The first mile is nothing special, but once you reach the bowl behind Mt. Marathon itself you'll have great views of Seward and the Kenai Fjords.

Awesome hike. Took about four hours. Ive hiked it on cloudy & clear days, and I like the clouds better. It brought out the green in the bay's waters & didn't overexpose any of the pics. Done 4x & will do again

Enjoyed our first hike in Alaska! A little muddy for the first half, but perfect for the last half up to Race Point. Beautiful views and not too hard of a hike.
