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.

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).

Really enjoyed this trail. I’m not sure what I was thinking it would be like, maybe more rolling into a bowl or a valley but it’s a climb up to the top of hatch peak. The first half up until the lake easily switchbacks and then after it gets harder but still not overly difficult. There is some rock scrambling, watch your step. The views from the top are 360 degrees in every direction you look, just beautiful! It took us 2 hours 33 mins We stopped for lots of pictures! Would do again and would recommend to others!

Easy trail with a winding path up. Takes about half as long to get back down!

Awesome, quick post-work hike with the hubby and two bullmastiffs. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we had amazing views for minimal effort. We did take the longer, but easier, route from the paved parking lot (on Google maps it’s the “north” trailhead; at the Butte it’s the “west” trail).

Spectacular hike, with amazing views :) When it came to the fork in the trail we went right, which was a good decision for us. It is a bit longer but not as steep of climb! Then on the way back down we came the other way which was nice cause we were cold and wanted to get down faster. Overall it took us 3.5 hours which included a decent break when we ate lunch :) Trails are kept nicely and other than the first short section, the trail is nice and open so no chance of running into bears.

Gorgeous Hike, not a real clearly marked trail. There is a better trail that I cut up on the saddle but I’m not sure where this started. The only reason this received a 3 star rating from me and not higher was that it’s marked as moderate and the top mile is some pretty gnarled rock crawling and scree. Not undoable but not somewhere I’d bring a novice or kids. I did see the obligatory ptarmigan and about 6 moose, one cow calf pair that prompted a 150yrd retreat back up the trail as they were using the portion I needed at that particular moment. All in all a great hike!

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

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

Straight up you go but worth the views at the top. Cloudy day but could wait a minute as the clouds passed in and out for clearer views. Saw no bears. A memorial bench about 1/3 the way up and abundant wildflowers about 1/2 the way up where you can expect a short break in the steep elevation climb. 2 and 1/2 hours up and 2 down with a stop for lunch on the way back.

Great view at the lake. Good hike with moderate incline in the beginning but then it's flat. Coming back was faster. It was pretty windy near the lake. Glad I had a coat. This was not too far away and close to home.

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

Beautiful and spectacular views from all angles. Definitely a place to take out of town guests.

Enjoyable moderate hike. We parked before the fee area, so it’s a little further of a hike in to the actual trailhead. Lots of people on the trail yesterday afternoon/evening. There was a bull moose sighting, but no disturbance by said moose. There were two tents at Rabbit Lake, which looked like a scenic spot to camp for a night.

This was a difficult trail. Pretty much straight the whole way up with few switch backs. Trail was not super well marked at times but was still fairly easy to follow. Worth it for the incredible views at the top. Lots of flowers blooming when we hiked (end of July). Took up about 5ish hours total. Definitely glad we brought snacks and plenty of water.

Great hike to a beautiful lake. At least the views that I could see below the low clouds.

Pretty easy trail and great for trail running because once you get up the little incline at the beginning it flattens out. No bears, No moose, and very dog friendly trail! This is my 4th time doing this one and I would recommend going on a clear day, the lake and suicide and homicide peaks will give you a phenomenal view

Foggy but beautiful! 3 or 4 amazing waterfalls and the cabin is super cool as well. Next time I’m for sure going to check out the glacier on the right. No bear sightings and no bear poop

Ranks as one of the steepest hikes that I’ve been on. Too bad the cloud ceiling was so low that I couldn’t see anything. I’m guessing that the views would have been outstanding.

Awesome hike with amazing views. Very busy trail on the first part to the lakes and snow, but once you start up the steeper/rocky part you get much more solitude. Took the trek down the opposite side which cut the time/distance at least in half! Don't think you could pick your way "up" this way though, it's all rocky/boulders, but it's definitely an alternate way back down rather than going back down the same way you went up.

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

July 29. Great hike with amazing views. Give yourself plenty of time and bring plenty of water. If you plan to make it all the way to the end, be prepared for a narrow trail on the ridge next to a steep scree slope that requires a bit of scrambling. The descent is quite rough on the knees. Overall great hike. Enjoy!

July 27. Awesome hike. When you reach the fork in the trail, I would recommend going right towards Crow Pass for better views.

On this trail you see several waterfalls, the lake at the top, and don’t miss the glacier shortly past the lake. We also saw a black bear in the valley. Great hike.

It was definitely more difficult than I anticipated toward the end. Wanted more switchbacks. But we made it! pack in more water than you think. We ran out.

I don't like the long, boring, uphill hike in. On a sunny day like last Sunday it feels like you are baking and there are few shady spots for relief. The dogs and kids were overheating and miserable. Once it opens up it's beautiful but I'd rather do the Williwaw Lakes trail where you get to beautiful scenery faster. A long hike up a road bed and then through alders isn't worth the payoff when compared to other trails.

this was so fun! we went yesterday 7-28-18, but the lake was so worth the climb. my Fitbit said it was a 642 elevation and it took us 45minutes to climb with my bad knee. we took our 9month old son as well loads of fun and an easy hike.

Beautiful views and fair balance of easy walking and challenging incline towards the top. The view you get of the matsu valley and bowl are absolutely stunning.

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