Beautiful, challenging, rewarding hike with amazing views. Be sure to go beyond the shelter for great views of the ice field.

Seems like a lot of potential in this trail, but not during inclement weather. Had to turn back because most of the trail is very exposed and the wind was brutal. Will try again another time. $5 parking FYI.

This trail was beautiful and sunny when I went up in mid September. It was a great place to get a killer view of everything around Anchorage.

Great go to hike if you need a quick/short hike workout.

Did right before the snow fell. The most peaceful hike! Saw 3 moose on the way!

I went on a Saturday in late September. it wasn't to crowded but parking is a bit crazy. it's a nice out and back. once you get to the lake, go right and you get a great view of the inlet.

Amazing like always

nice hike close to town. beautiful views.

Perfect day for this hike! Trail was a little muddy after the rain yesterday and then the top had some snow. But the trail was evident with all the foot traffic. Clear enough to see Denali and the views from the peak were incredible. Saw 3 moose on the way up and then 20 sheep (3 different groups) at the peak. Definitely will do again. Enjoy!

Well worth the effort. Camped at the top. Bring at least 3 liters of water if you're doing the whole trail, especially if the sun is out. There are many streams if you have a filter.

We ended up just going up ship creek pass to ship lake to see the reveal. It was amazing. Saw a bunch of moose on our way back couple nice bulls. Moderate hike with a creek the whole way up.

Gorgeous fall day. Beautiful colors below tree line and the lake a stunning, crisp navy blue.

Just did O’Malley today! Took 3.5 hours roundtrip, however my friend and I ran up to the ascent before little Omalley, then the ball fields, and then down the scree coming back. Every opportunity we could. It’s an incredible hike but does require some confidence when heading up the gulley of big Omalley. We took the goat paths whenever we could find them but it was not technical at all. The view from the top, on a bluebird day, is incredible and well worth the trek! Saw about 4 bull moose and a cow coming back. Pretty highly trafficked, but not too many people once you leave the ball fields and start heading up big Omalley. Totally doable hike!

The last 200 feet is very difficult. I got to see some moose on a side trail and the view was outstanding. It was a heavily trafficked trail, but I knew that going in, from the other reviews. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a challenge.

Easy, quick, beautiful hike!

Easy, well marked trail with the first quarter mile of asphalt. Bring a jacket if it's windy... the breeze off the glacier is cold!
Since the glacier is receding, the overlook gets you close, but not quite up to it. can still get great pics.

The ease-ability to reward ratio on this hike is fantastic. Our group of three went out and back in around 3hrs but, only spent ten to fifteen at the lake. Real chill and gradual for the incline, nice views throughout, and a lovely reward of a pristine alpine lake at the end. Love!

Well worth the hike! It is absolutely beautiful and the Lake is amazing!

Good views like every other mountain in the state, this app labels it as hard but it’s definitely not. It should be rated as moderate.

Had a frightening bear encounter with a sow and three cubs less than a mile in and sadly didn't get to do the hike this day. It's on my "to conquer" list now for sure. Be alert and be bear aware through here folks.

Gruelling hike up and down but well worth every bit of the effort. one of the most amazing and rewarding views in my 66 years on the planet

easy trail to the overlook point.. good glacier view..

One of the most beautiful hike in Kenai Pensilvania.

This peak took us almost 4hrs to reach the top, taking our time in some places due to the loose ground and a few steep areas that are probably out of most people’s comfort zone, but if you don’t mind heights, the view is unbelievable!

Was there a week ago. Absolutely worth the trek. Breathtaking hike.

Amazing views, and tons of water along the hike for pups to drink. The slow climb up to the lake makes the hike kind of easy. We would rate it “moderate” only because of the distance.

More of a nature walk but well worth the view at the end! Beautiful September weather!!
