Beautiful hike/walk. Easy and clearly marked trails. We saw a bald eagle at the lake, moose tracks and bear scat.

My 6 and 9 year old kids made the entire trail and I couldnt be prouder since it is strenuous for an adult. Views are spectacular and I really enjoyed the wildflowers. So much I bought an identifying guide book.

Great hike. The first 3/4 is realistically moderate the last 1/4 is hard, but completely worth the view. The trail has a couple routes you can take as well. Great way to see the town of anchorage. Wind can get crazy but it’s fun. Well traveled so you won’t be alone

Very fun family and dog friendly trail. Bring gloves for the hand tram.

Park at the resort much easier to find the trail this way.

Easy trail with amazing views of the mountains and glacier.. lots of super cold running water.. beautiful flowers along the way..

The most incredible views ever. Super steep hike so bring poles and be prepared to work hard, this is a tough hike and will take longer because of the steepness. Blueberries along the way, gorgeous wildflowers, and stunning views of Kenai Lake the whole time.

Nice easy start then quite the “goat climb” to the top beautiful views all around saw a Dall Sheep that crossed the trail ahead of me. 6 Bald Eagles circling over head and a huge bull Moose off in the distance

My favorite part of this hike was the top of the cliffs section. Great views of the glacier and very lush at the end of July. We decided to end our hike with about 20 minutes left to the end of the trail due to crummy weather.

Good trail, really popular. Went at end of July, the flowers down by the glacier were beautiful.

Good trail. A lot of traffic on it. The hand tram was super fun to use! We will know better next time, but park at the Alyeska Resort, walk to the back of the resort and get to the Winner trailhead from there (on the left side trough the trees).

Amazing views from the top and is challenging getting back down over the rocks. Fantastic hike!

We completed this trail yesterday with my 5 year old.

The first .75 to 1 mile is a steady climb up. Once at the top if you want to get to the lake go left and follow the marked trail. if you go right there's a nice view after maybe 5 min.

The trail is easy to follow, if in spots mildly pushed in by plants. Bring bug spray.

The trail offers some beautiful views and isn't difficult. It is a popular trail so you most likely won't be the only one out there.

Absolutely stunning views. Bring big spray and trekking poles. Took about 5 hours round trip. Saw a few mountain goat as well.

It was pretty but a short hike.

Great trail. Tough

well maintained trail! it took my friend and i just under 4 hours to complete with hanging at the top for a little. it’s a constant but not severe incline.

Pretty easy going hike with a great view at the snow field! :)

the perfect hike for beginners and berry lovers

Had 4hrs to complete this trail up and down before the last shuttle back to Seward. I accomplished it at a quick, relentless pace with my 40lb pack to boot. Even took a 15 min rest and chat at the little shelter up top. Beautiful trail and a great workout. Most will want to give themselves 5-6hrs minimum based on fitness and whether it’s a leisure hike.

My favorite hike ever.

Amazing. Made it to the shelter and the fog settled in. Beautiful views and well groomed trail. The meadows were amazing with flowers in bloom. Saw Marmots but no bears. Last part of trail we slagging through some snow but trail well marked. Shelter was very cool and we stopped the hike there as fog was too thick to see much beyond. Blue ice glaciers were massive and very picturesque. Saw some people hiking on Exit Glacier which was cool to see. Not too many people. Would recommend anytime.

Very well maintained and fun to hike! Took us just over 3 hours to go out and back. A few good views at the gorge and on the tram, but mostly just a forest hike. I recommend starting from behind the Alyeska Lodge instead of where this says to start. There isn’t any easy parking.

Quick steep hike very busy as well. The scramble to the top is fun and some great views from the top!

Amazing trail with scenic views.
Follow the waterfall flowing into Turnagain Arm all the way up to the glacier lake.
Saw tons of Dall Sheep near the peaks.

it was completely cloudy so you couldn't see anything higher than Marmot meadow, but the views we did have were really nice and the trail was nice as well

Pretty easy trail which is great with the kids. We left from the Alyeska Resort and hiked to the bus pick up at the Winner Creek Gorge. Lots of trees, moss and lush green. The hand tram was cool. Bridges and rivers make this a nice hike. We came across other hikers and families, occasional bike riders. The hand tram had a short wait. We were behind two turns on our side.
Bring bug spray and probably bear spray.

Let me start out by saying that I am glad I made it to the top to see the lake and the views were okay.
I wouldn't do this trail again unless I wanted to get a great workout. It was close to 8 miles out and back and half of the trail was very thick. It is mid July so take that into account. I was honestly very worried about bears because visibility was so poor. There are much better trails with better views in my opinion.

My gal and I hiked Flattop early on a warm summer day. When we arrived we were the only ones there and the view was so inspiring that we decided to make love. I can tell you from experience, this is a great place to view Alaska from and even greater for making love.
