    Nice easy walk, we did 2 loops around the lake for about 2 miles. A lot of water fowl, so a lot of geese poop in certain areas but it wasn't terrible. There was a consistent breeze so it wasn't too hot, there is not any shade on the walking paths.

    This is truly a hard trail. My BF and I are new to hiking in AK and have lived here for only 7 months. This trail kicked our butts and reminded us that we are getting older. We have done a couple of other hard trails but this one had us working hard the whole time! The views are beautiful and it was easier for us going up, we took regular "catch our breath breaks", but coming back down my knees were not happy. We were grateful for our walking sticks, wing breakers when we got towards the top, and snacks. There are a few false peaks that chip at your motivation to keep going. I think we made it to the second to the last peak...but I could be wrong. As novices for this type of hiking, straight up and straight down, we felt good for how far we got, we enjoyed the views. No wild animals sited but the mosquitos are out! Traffic was mild due to it being in the middle of the week. Always listen to your body and don't over do it! Enjoy the hike...for us it's about the enjoyment, nature, and views...it is never a race to get to the top :)

    Great afternoon winter walk. We took an hour and a half doing the loop. Pretty busy with fat bikes and cross country skiing but not to the point that it took away from the walk. No animal sightings. I look forward to walking this trail in the spring and summer!
