Nice trail, easy walking, we jogged some of the downhill parts. Made it from one side to the other in under 3 hours.

As of today, August 18, there were a couple of muddy spots, one washed out section of trail, and one section under water (but you can nimbly cross using a fallen tree, which adds to the fun!). The trail is well kept. Be aware that it spits you out on Parks Highway with nothing immediately close by. Either plan to leave a car, walk 6 miles back to Riley Creek Mercantile by highway, walk back to the canyon to catch a shuttle, or do the trail out and back. I did the out and back. I am not a fast hiker, averaging 2 miles per hour with stops for breaks, photos, and playing. So 19 or so miles took me 9.5 hours. Most of the trail is pretty easy. One section on the return is gradual incline for over 3 miles almost nonstop. That was a cardio workout! No bugs this time of year. Don't trust the weatherman if he says no chance of rain. Bring gear.

Did the whole thing out and back. Came out to a total of 18.8 miles, which I finished in almost exactly 7 hours. VERY muddy and it was raining when I did it so when you start to get close to the visitor center heading south to north, a few parts of the trail were completely underwater. Other than that, amazing hike. One of the best trails to hike if you want to see wildlife as they tend to congregate near one of the 3 lakes you’ll pass. Always cool to see moose taking a swim and playing around. Very windy on some of the higher sections so dress accordingly

This is a wonderful trail. We left from the park visitor center trailhead and headed south. The weather was far from ideal, constant August rain made for some very slick areas of climb and descent. There was also a portion of trail 1.5 miles from the visitor center trailhead that was completely submerged. If you're planning a rain-day hike, prepare to get your feet wet and layer accordingly. There was also a small rockslide at mile 4 but thankfully was still safely passable. This definitely added to the adventure of the hike. That said, the hike was well worth the effort. The views from the ridgeline, even in the clouds were incredible and the lakes were an excellent treat as you near the south end of the trail. We did the north-to-south single pass in about 5 hours with plenty of photo breaks, lunch and side-trail exploring. It's worth pacing just to take in the scenery. This is a must for anyone with basic hike experience. I'm far from in shape and though there were ascents that got my blood pumping, I was never completely winded. Add this to your Denali bucket list for sure!

Trail starts steep but with fairly good footing by rocks and roots. Some loose gravel. Nice view of the lake, town, an mountians.

This was the perfect way to (literally) step into some of the best of what Alaska scenery offers. Beautiful trail with lush greenery and a shimmering blue lake that's warm enough to take a swim during the summer months. Could have spent much longer exploring the offshoot trails, but the couple of hours around Dewey Lake will be forever remembered.

Hi All, This is not a review, Just wanted to check if Denali Village resort shuttle is accessible to all, even to people not stay at the resort? Thanks for the help!

If you want a great view of Skagway you just have a short semi-steep climb to get a great view over the boat harbor. As you continue on the lower Dewey lake trail, if you veer to the right you will have a straight walk to the end of the lake. As you come around the back side of the lake, it has a lot of large rocks that you have to traverse and a lot of walking over roots the entire way. . Probably not good for people who are not used to doing this type of activity.

Houses are starting to be built along a section of the trail that would otherwise give a nice mountain view. will look much different in a year or two, I'd bet.

Loved this trail, very easy for a nice stroll. Would be a great place for trail running. Saw some men salmon fishing. Great camping spots too. A few geocache spots too!

This was a nice day hike for our group that ranged from 10 to 75 years of age. We were not interested in a big climb or the full distance, so we decided to hike from the south trail head closest to the Nenana river bridge. You can park in a little pull off on the trail side of the road. The hike is pretty moderate until you pass the third lake, so we ended up hiking north to the highest point of elevation. We saw great views of the lakes all along the trail, especially from the climb past the last lake. In terms of wildlife, we spotted some Ptarmigan, a beaver swimming and a moose eating in one of the lakes.

Very well kept, beautiful. Narrow track, about 20 inches wide cut into the side of a mountain. Suspension bridge is at the visitor center end, the lakes are at the other end. If you go at the end of July/beginning of August there's tons of blueberries and raspberries everywhere. Bring lots of water and pack insect repellent. We only saw some Ptarmigan but the trail is really remote so bear spray is a good safety measure. I'm kind of out of shape and pacing myself it took about seven hours one way, starting from the park village side. If you're fit and are able to do a lot of uphill quickly, the average is about four hours one way.

Fun hike with great views. Definitely recommend parking at the visitor center or bus stop and taking the shuttle to the Denali Village. Ask them to drop you at the trailhead so you don’t have to walk back. The climb is 500’ less (trailhead elevation is higher) and you only hike 9.5 miles. Lots of blackberries and raspberries too (7/24).

Great hike. First half Of the way up is easy and some of the most scenic forest I’ve hiked. It felt tropical with ferns and giant Lilly pad-like greens. Beautiful waterfall. The second half is a lot harder. Steep, up and down over large tree root structures with awkward footing and lots of mud. But def worth it. Last 1/4 mile was very swampy. Also, my gps clocked 10 miles instead of the 8.4 shown.

Steep climb well worth the scenic view of Skagway. Also the lake is beautiful the trails around it and the water running through is so peaceful.

Accurate description - first approx. half mile is steep, then flattens out to a beautiful, scenic, very easy hike around the lake. The west side is very easy walking, the east side has a few climbs over roots and rocks that might be less comfortable for some people. You can do this hike in 2 hours or less from/to Skagway harbor. If you wish to extend, you can add the trail to Icy Lake and Reid Falls. Together, these trails fit into a day easily - we did both while our cruise ship docked in Skagway. If you have to pick just one, I recommend this over the Icy Lake/Reid Falls trail - it's definitely more scenic and rewarding views, a bit easier walking and a tick shorter, too. But both are beautiful.

Great trail. Well maintained. Good variety of scenery. Not too much up or down. Moderate to easy.

Amazing views.

The "Description" and "Getting There" links for this trail are spot on. After the steep first half mile, it flattens out to a beautiful easy trail run. I stayed to the right and followed the signs and the view from the far end of the lake (near the hydro sign) are STUNNING. The opposite side of the lake was turned rocky and more like a hike in secrions. LOVED IT!

An amazing hike! Beautifully maintained trail! Loved it all!!

My 5-star rating of this trail is spot on; this trail is as good as it gets. I ran this in June of 2019 and started around 4am. I started from the south (at the Denali Park Village) and ran north to the entrance of Denali. The trail was well marked and there was no chance of getting lost. The three lakes were absolutely stunning and the silence (except for the birds) was was-inspiring. I saw moose tracks and moose scat but no actual moose until I got to the park at the end of the trail. Whether you walk or run this trail, I feel confident to say I guarantee you’ll love it. I made a video of this run and did get the moose on film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFm19DQ4wpk This is a point-to-point trail so make sure you have a good way to get to where you need to be at the end. I was a little tired after finishing the trail and was not looking forward to running the 6 miles on road back to the start. Fortunately, I was picked up (hitchhiking) so got a ride for the last 3 miles. If you’re in Denali, make time and do this trail; you will love it!

Good trail, lots of overgrown vegetation and a fallen log across path. Waterfall was great!! Could feel the mist from the lookout!
