I think this should be labeled as difficult. Certain points were difficult to get up. It will definitely wear you out. Amazing views and lakes along the way.

Took my dog. It was a nice trail and even saw people on horses. Great creeks for the dog to drink from and play in.

Nice leisure bike ride. I wish the view was more incredible.

I love the trails, some of them are short some of the merge and can make for a longer hike. There are a lot of off-road bike trails that are also fun to walk on as they're so deep in the woods and then there's the wonderful coastal Trail. I almost always find a Moes on one of my outings. How about a little frisbee golf and in the winter I love to go sledding him up by the chalet

Since I have further looked at this I have decided we went down the wrong trail. But we started at the fee station and went up the rather steep incline then went left instead of right. I believe RPT was the right and we went up another very steep trail to the top of the mountain. Just be careful and aware because it was a difficult instead of easy trail to the left. Steep with rocks that were loose. It was still a great trail though definitely challenging with 2 and 4 yr old.

One of my favorite hikes when I want to do a Chugach mountain without the bustle of Flat Top. Some in the trees, some in the open, and you'll get a great view of the mountains.

A local favorite. Some of the best views in the area, a well marked and pretty heavily traveled trail. I've done it in the middle of winter and in the middle of summer and both seasons offer a different type of hike.

This is an easy walk, mostly flat, not much elevation change. Pleasant short hike for a couple of hours. A variety of trails to choose from. Be ready to share the trail with other walkers, runners, bicyclists, and dogs. This is a very popular recreational area. There are designated trails for dog sleds, too.

Pleasant easy-to-moderate hike in Far North Bicentennial Park. Moose along the trail. Nice view of Anchorage below. Lots of bear scat; no bears seen along our path.

Absolutely stunning trail, and very easy!

Great view of the city. Saw a moose pop out of the bushes

Great hike, nothing complicated, kind of steep if your not use to hiking. Several other options for other hikes in and around the around. Amazing views 360, all around from the summit. As always, bring bug spray.

Very nice trail

Took the family out today for a walk. Beautiful day to get out. 5 mile easy loop. Lots of runners and bikers out.
