Recommend bringing trekking poles. Very steep on the way up, if you take the right entrance. Left side could be used for both up and down if you don’t mind walking a little longer and stay on the safe side. Amazing view on the top though! Could be a great work out trail!

Fantastic hike!! definitely not for the faint hearted, the walk is pretty steep and the air gets very thin but it's worth it for the views! FYI the ski lift looks like its shut but there are two so keep walking down and you'll see it; $15 for a trip down - we were dead on our feet so were more than happy to grab it. Lots of wasps around the top for anyone allergic. A must hike!

Nice simple hike. Bring shoes you can get wet if you want to reach the falls

Easy and quick family friendly hike. Definitely recommend this one.

Well worth the hike. I’d recommend going up the hard route (right) and reward yourself by coming down the easier side (left). The views at the top were breathtaking. Took about 35 minutes up with water breaks and had the summit to myself. If you have the time, continue along the ridge to Black Tail (another must do).

Great bike ride!

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

Great trail, pretty easy but amazing views.. lots of water and big waterfall!! Glad I got to explore Alaska trails!!

Steep steep to the top, but so worth it! Went down the easier way, and that helped a lot.

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

First time ever today. So awesome! The views are spectacular.

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

It was pretty but a short hike.

Fun to walk through the old mine area and see the water tunnel

Great trail. Tough

Nice waterfall. The upper viewing platform has the best view of the falls. The lower trail gets you closer and is much cooler near he river.

This is a good trail if you want to go out for a walk, but if you're trying to get "in nature," I would pass. Part of the trail has you basically walking through the backyards of homes in a subdivision. Otherwise, the lake at the end is gorgeous and there was cool wildlife out there.

Nice easy hike with fall and Gorge views. We stoped by Mirror lake adjacent to hike as well.

Great hike!

Short hike, pretty bridges to the falls. Great place to get out for a quick breath of fresh hair.

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

Definitely a good workout hike. Trekking poles would help on the way down. Beautiful view from the top.

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.

Great hike very near Anchorage.

Hiked it yesterday with my husband 3 kids and dog. Was an awesome hike and the view at the top was amazing!!
