At Some Point..... Map

Rainy and pretty chilly day. Up there, view was very nice even with the clouds. Did it with son and daughter (10 and 6) and by the end children were exhausted.

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.

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.

nice easy trail, gradual incline until it gets steep at the end. I did it as an out and back because I didn't see exactly where the loop was. good hike if you only have a few hours took me 2.5 hours

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

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.

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.

Our hike on this trail was terrific. The road going to the trail head was freshly paved in 2018. Terrific view of Eagle River at the top. My 5 year old did it under his own power, so I would describe it as a family friendly hike. I highly recommend trekking poles for stability, they were a huge help in a few spots.

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.

Beautiful, very quiet and beautiful when you hike to the top to the glacier and look over the water.

If you want a challenge take the telephone trail path up and keep on right to connect with main trail. It will work every muscle in your legs. Feels great!

This is an amazing trail that I believe all hardcore hikers should experience. I’ve done this hike twice and both were in the clouds. Don’t plan on doing anything else in the day if you’re doing the hike. My friend and I started at 8 in the morning and didn’t get back until 9 at night. He was a little rusty and we took quite a few breaks, but it’s still a very lengthy hike. Bring a ton of water and snacks, various kinds of weather clothing, and bear protection. The lower half is quite bushy and the willows can be hard navigating through, but above the tree-line is much easier going. The last portion of the hike (the slope of the mountain itself) is very rough and all boulders making for a long and never ending ascent. The descent is even more tough and can wear down on knees and ankles, so bring very supportive hiking shoes with you. The view is awesome! It feels like you’re on top of the world. I definitely want to do this hike again when it’s sunny and clear out for a better view of the coast that lies in the south.

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

Great hike! One of my favorites in Alaska so far. Beautiful view of Eklutna! The clouds were pretty low, so we couldn't see all the peaks, but still worth it!

Been to 55 National parks in 6 different countries. This trail is in the top 5. Only issue was quite a bit of loose snow hiking near the end but definitely worth the effort

Was disappointed in this hike. It was relentless, straight up, and boring. No variety. Views include the mountains, hotel parking lot and the Tram wires. The top is a good view but nothing compared to Cross Pass. Shoulder height thick vegetation and buggy today. .

One of my favorite trails yet! Very well kept, challenging yet plenty of scenic flat parts. Went to the top of the cliffs and it took about 4 hours.

Tuff, but rewarding scenery + views

Switchback, switchback, oh wait another switchback.... this is beautiful if you have the stamina to go the whole way. Got rained on but overall it’s as perfect as everyone says it is.

Epic hike with my daughter on July 15, 2018. We made Summit and it was worth the steady and steep uphill trek. Once we hit the storm cabin we moved on to the epic summit where the views were heavenly. Definitely good to carry bear spray. We started at 10 am and it was very light traffic. By 4 pm when we were making our decent there were a lot of people. One of the best hikes ever. Layers are recommended as we went from warm woods to cold snowy mountain sides. Suggestion-
Make it to the summit!!!

Amazing trail. Intense boulders but worth it!

Incredible hike- one of best I’ve done. The views of the glacier were better than anything I did at Banff. Absolutely a must to do in Alaska.

We went about 3 miles in, little past the glacier overlook. Did not go past mostly bc it was very cold at that point and getting late- would have liked to continue to the end. If you do, be aware you are hiking up area with snow and it gets very slippery, hiking poles are a big help

The trailhead is confusing to find. You will go thru the locked red gate then continue to the electrical structure with the fence around it then if you look to the left the trailhead starts. The hike is great but up is a must. Hiking sticks would have been helpful.

The elevation picked up fast but it was worth the view from the top of the cliff!

Only made it to Marmot Meadows but it was a gorgeous view of Exit glacier

The reason for 3 stars is the horrible gravel road you have to drive up to get to the trail head. Was definitely a one time thing for me. If you have a 4 wheel drive you'll be good. $5 for parking. Also as others mentioned this is more a moderate hike than easy.

It is a strenuous hike. We started off with ranger led hike till Marmot meadows since we weren’t sure of bear encounters. But looks like there was no need to worry; this was a heavily trafficked trail. This part of the trail is well covered though lot of bugs. After this the trail opens up completely up till the summit. The views of the icefield were phenomenal. There were a lot of snow patches that we had to cross and hiking sticks are recommended. We made it in 6 and half hours including time spent at the summit. Start early as it gets really hot when crossing the snow patches!

Hiked this one on July 4, 2018. Wonderful views once you get up close to the top and there’s a couple different trail options you can take halfway up. Would definitely rate it moderate due to the incline. If you hike this one on a sunny day, there is no shade so keep that in mind. We brought our two dogs and had them on leashes, but it seemed that almost everyone else ignores those signs and we constantly had other dogs running up on ours. It didn’t seem like almost anyone else had their dogs on leashes up here, so if you have a dog that doesn’t play well with others this might not be the best place to bring them.
