Less traveled than the Symphony Lake trail, take it all the way to the end for the best views.

Fun and short hike. A few ups and downs but nothing too difficult. The trail is busy and looks a bit abused. The erosion is bad and it appears a lot of people have chosen to ignore the signs and have made their mark off the main trail.

Slaughter was a great hike! It's easy to get to but not so easy to find. The trail starts through forrest without any view, but with beautiful trees and a crystal clear creek. After clearing the trees, it's almost directly vertical and up rocks-not for the scared of heights or out of shape. The ascent is 1500 ft in the first 1.3 milea but the reward is beautiful. I could've sat up there for hours!

I was decently surprised by this hike! It's elevation isn't much but the hike through the forrest is stunning. It's close to Alyeska Resort and pretty easy so it's decently trafficked but this hike still manages to make you forget that you're within a 10 minute drive of Girdwood and not out in the middle of nowhere. The waterfall cascade is beautiful and powerful. The hand tram across the river is exhilarating and exhausting. I loved this hike!

This hike was awesome. It begins relatively easy but gets much more difficult as it gets higher into alpine. It's lightly trafficked and the view from the overlook is breath-taking. A narrow foot trail continues on for another half mile or so but this summit was well worth it and perfectly enough.

Great! For us it was cloudy, so it was slightly disappointing view from the summit (all white), but the trail itself is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
