dogs on leash
very beautiful during the winter. dogs are allowed and most are not on leashes. you do share the trail with bike riders, sled dogs, and cross country skiing.. Didnt see any wild animals but thats not to say they didnt see me or hear me..lol
Fantastic views from the top! Moderately hard for the first 2/3rds and then the last bit is rocky and straight up. There's a sign that says pets not recommended past this point. We didn't listen. Our dog did fine going up, but was terrified going down.
What a hike. Easy path to follow, rewarding with its views, and wildlife to entertain you on your hike up. Didn't see a bear but plenty of moose. There's a period where you undergo a long, steep incline-- so the difficulty is measured as it should be--- difficult. The snow caps enhanced the landscapes beauty - as well as its chilliness but all so gratifying. Enjoy your hike as I have!
Starts out easy, then about halfway in it just goes up, and keeps going up. Little break when you get to the first ridge line, but then it's a steep climb again to the summit. Great views all around at the top. Coming down the loose gravel can make the trail slick near the summit, but nothing major.
Pammy W. on Earthquake Park
visited many times for walks and viewing 2013 thru 2015. great place for pics.
Great trail for cycling! You'll almost definitely encounter moose - and probably not just one but several. The trail also provides scenic views of Anchorage, the surrounding mountain ranges and Knik Arm. And if you are into plane spotting: Point Woronzof at milepost 4 is right by Anchorage Airport's runway and a good place to watch the jets land and take off.
