    Beautiful. Saw a black bear in the parking lot. Hand trolly was very cool. Fam of 4 took this trail and we loved it.

    Phenomenal views. Kinda hard to trail run all the way to the top on account of the elevation gain...but one can hurry. Beautiful clear morning with gorgeous unparalleled views. Only fell twice on the way back down and I took the hiking trail. A little rough in places and grown over. Totally Alaska. Don't miss it.

    Great views. Fairly steep but not too bad.

    I can't say enough good things about this Trail. Big payoff at the end with an alcove that looks out over the canyons. The trail is interesting enough in and of itself with some scrambling and navigation challenges along the way. Follow the cairns. Keep an eye out for kids who may roam on their own ahead of you & make sure they are following the cairns as well. Our 6th grader strayed along the way. There's a spiritual feeling in the Kiva alcove that is unique, a hushed awe of what nature provides. If you start at the Alcove Springs pull out parking area and head back up the road on the right side (opposite side), you'll find the trail at the first bend in the road. It's not a guardrail per say, but instead crossed timber logs on the side of the road that serve as a barrier of sorts. The trail starts just on the other side of that. Enjoy and don't miss it.
