Seems like a lot of potential in this trail, but not during inclement weather. Had to turn back because most of the trail is very exposed and the wind was brutal. Will try again another time. $5 parking FYI.

Great go to hike if you need a quick/short hike workout.

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.

Great hike! Blue glacier covered with snow but still a lovely hike with a great view! Very windy and Lots of ice today, minimal pockets of deep snow before you get to the pass. Started too late @ 1 pm and was nearly to the lake at 2:30. Had to turn around as it’s DST and after the sun went behind mountain at 3:30 things just became more dim. Got to my car at 4:30 very dusky & Probably dehydrated at that time. Remember to drink water when it’s cold outside. You need it and don’t realize it.
Gorgeous sunny day and only 4 people at the pass and no one else. The gentlemen said it’s a 4 hr hike minimum. 2 hrs there and 2 hrs back. Happy hiking!

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.

The toughest part of the trail is the beginning with a pretty steep elevation. The trail is well maintained but due to the small gravel type rocks traction is iffy. The payoff of the glacier and portage lake is so worth it though. Pack a lunch and find a nice secluded spot around the side of the lake to enjoy.

This hike is definitely a challenge. I am 22 years old and In pretty good shape. It is mostly up hill the whole entire way. Once you past the second bench it turns into a narrow trail, with grass as tall as you. Come to a corner the trail kinda ends and you can go up at your own risk. This part becomes very hard. It opens up and you can see twin peaks well, did not make it any further to see the lake from the very top. Would recommend hiking boots rather than running shoes. Also saw a black bear on the trail right after second bench on the way down. Bring bear spray lots of water, and pack light. Going down is also very tiring. Shin splints is a real thing !

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 view at the top!

Great hike! Some sections of steep, loose rock but overall very satisfying. Gives a great view of Seward.

The last 200 feet is very difficult. I got to see some moose on a side trail and the view was outstanding. It was a heavily trafficked trail, but I knew that going in, from the other reviews. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a challenge.

Hi guys!!! We did it with two my Siberian Huskies Woooooo

This is a short, but very beautiful and family friendly.

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

Jeep trail tough for an out shape gal but all the way to the end of skyline....soo worth the view

Good views like every other mountain in the state, this app labels it as hard but it’s definitely not. It should be rated as moderate.

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

It’s uphill all the way but the views are 100% worth it.

really steep to climb but worth it.. amazing view..

Gorgeous with the fall colors! A perfect hike if you want to be able to talk and hike. The trail is wide enough to walk side by side most of the way.
