How long did it take you to get to the top of Round Top?
It was great! Got some awesome pictures, great views. Lots of blueberries around this time (August). I'm pretty sure the directions on here are wrong. But we found it and loved it!
Great first impression for my families intro to hiking Alaska! We went on a very foggy day...couldn't see much at all but that kept the temperature cool. We left the trail after the Alders and went vertical...hearts were thumping and the tundra was soft to stride on as we climbed. Great experience!
I have never made it to Roundtop, but I have made it to the top of Blacktail. Great hike! Bring lots of water
Not for a newby to hiking and bring your poles, scrambling and ruff, oh but what an awesome view at the end.
