    Nicole Helcher reviewed Hatcher Pass Scenic Drive

    We visited Alaska from Michigan for a week. We laugh because when something says "scenic drive" we're like: "Where isn't it a scenic drive?". Everywhere was so beautiful and Hatcher's Pass was no exception!

    Whoever rated this as easy is insane. haha. Moderate at the least (if you're in good shape) and Hard if you aren't in great shape. It's an uphill climb all the way to the top. The views are gorgeous. When we got to the top the wind was so strong you had to keep your footing solid to stay on your feet!

    The road was still closed due to the amount of snow but it was open to pedestrians on foot. There were quite a few people walking up and back from the old mining town. Lots of signs to read and learn from. It was kind of neat to have waste deep snow and then we drove 10 minutes down the road to the Gold Mint Trail and took our jackets off because we were too warm!

    A nice city trail. There were plenty of mosquitoes! Nice views and lots of educational signs to read and learn. We parked at Earthquake Park.

    This was a busy trail. Pretty easy with a little bit of incline. The mosquitoes will eat you alive if you don't where bug spray. We did quite a few trails while in Alaska and this seemed to be the one where all the mosquitoes liked to live. haha. Damp from the river/waterfall and full of people to eat. ;)

    This was an easy, short trail. Beautiful views. There was a tall platform built where you climb some stairs to get a higher view of the surroundings.

    This was our first trail when we arrived in Alaska. The views are beautiful. It is an easy, laid back trail. We saw a moose as soon as we arrived. Some hikers coming off the trail said they had just seen a brown bear. We kept our eyes open for safety but we didn't see the bear.

    I'm a little out of shape, so this was a difficult climb for me. I took my time and I achieved it. There were, however, people trail running it. Those people are super heroes in my book! haha. Whether you're fit or not, the beautiful views are worth the climb!

    This was a very beautiful trail. Scenic and easy. There was a yellow bear alert up when we were there. Be safe and alert at all times.

    This was one of our favorite trails during our Alaska visit. It was super foggy and drizzly on the way up, but at the top we were standing above the clouds and the views were amazing! There were people coming back down who said they didn't feel comfortable with the rock scrambling section to get to the top so they turned around and came back down at that point. My husband and I didn't have any trouble getting to the top. Even if you choose to skip the rock scrambling section to get to the top, you'll still see some great views!

    An absolutely wonderful way to see Boston and learn a lot of history!

    This is a wonderful place for a day hike (or longer if you want... camping is available). Today was an absolutely beautiful day. Peaceful, birds chirping, river flowing, frogs singing, breeze blowing. I saw someone chilling in a hammock with a book (brilliant). It is $6 for a day pass to get into the park. Worth it if you ask me. :) The trails are very well marked and trail maps available at several locations.
