I recommend this trail during the summer. We went in late January, and the trail had footholes everywhere, making it hard to find good footing. At a certain point, id say halfway through, we had to turn around because there had been a snow avalanche and signs posted that it was dangerous to go further. As it got darker, couldn't see the holes in the ground and continued to slip, especially when it began to rain. Road was blocked off about a mile out. It was beautiful though, and you're really close to the mountains, will be trying this trail again in summer.

great hike that's easy for a quick hike

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

Good views, you have to go on a few different trails to see all the different views

I do not recommand during winter. Especially on rainny days like today.The trail was not groomed and we couldn’t find our way. We turned back because of the rain, and to difficult to find through the snow. Maybe easierif you have snowshoes! The road stopped before the entrance of the trail.

Went up in mid September in the warm sunshine, was extremely stoked on the views from the top. Would recommend going all the way back along the ridge for more awesome sights.

Went in aug. Was so fun with the dogs! Love the alpine flat area!

beautiful during winter. only could go to the falls outlook. couldn't go to the river because the way down was nothing but ice and wouldn't be able to make it back up.

I did this as a thru hike (30 miles) in 2.5 days in late September and loved it. As others have noted, there aren't many switchbacks and the trail mostly goes straight up and down hills so heavy rain made the trail somewhat treacherous. There were a few sections of rock gardens to hike through where I lost track of the trail and turned to the AllTrails map on my phone for navigation. Not many people out there as I saw 1 other hiker during my trip. The Northern half of this trail is more rugged and technical, which I really enjoyed. The miles are slower than other places I've hiked but the views were incredible. Because of the open tunrda, you are very safe from bears because of the good visibility and hiking / camping views of the Talkeetna and Denali ranges are stunning.

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.

Great views in early September, had a clear day in the high 50’s F*. Finished in a few hours then went to pizza man. “Big win”

Awesome hike and great views. Definitely worth the $30.

beautiful drive with many hikes ranging from easy to difficult. even if you do not hike, this is one of the most beautiful drives!

this is one of my favorite early morning or after work hikes. there are 2 routes, straight up and down or the lazy moose switchback which is 1 mile longer each way.

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.

Took the shorter trail to the left on the way up, very slippery with mud and very steep. Amazing views at the top. Took the lazy moose trail on the way down and we were happy we did. Not steep or slippery at all, round trip with breaks took us 4.5 hours

Nice short hike for all ages with elevations. Busy on weekends. Dog friendly.

Beautiful scenery & very well maintained trail! Easy hike. Take your kids they should be able to complete it. However be careful. We Crossed paths with a hungry bear (just a black bear which poses little threat to humans) eating salmon in the river the trail runs through.

F**k the owner. 30$ just to see the glacier from up close.

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..
