    Highly-trafficked but very accessable. bring a hat and jacket for the top as it can get very windy! Great views on the Inlet and beyond on a nice day. I recommend doing this trail as a sunset hike, bring a headlamp and avoid to crowds for a golden-hour view of the Chugach. It isn't a long hike but it is moderately strenuous during the last ascent. Make a day of it and explore the ridge lines beyond Flattop towards Ptarmigan

    Might be shorter from Glenn Alps trailhead than prospect heights.
    9/30-10/1: Trail was muddy most of the way but still manageable. 2 bull moose spotted towards the mouth of the valley and plenty of Dahl Sheep near the lakes. Easy trail, not too much elevation climb. Lots of choices to go on over Williwaw Pass or veer off to Black Lake

    I love ridgeline hikes so this was a great time for me. Great views of Cook Inlet and into Chugach; Ptarmigan Peak and the Suicide Peaks are apparent and begging for attention across Rabbit Creek. This hike is great when the clouds are brushing the mountains.

    Lovely walk/hike! moderately easy, though it is a bit lengthy. Seems pretty busy on the weekends, I'm sure the crowds calm down in weekdays/off-season. if you follow this trail and pass Eagle Lake to the left, it will lead you to Flute Glacier's terminus (this glacier is the reason why Eagle Lake is milky-azure in color). I would recommend Flute Glacier be done in an overnight.

    Lots of highway noise from treeline, starts disapating towards top. Make sure to wear sunscreen, this trail is pretty exposed!
    Make sure to explore some of the ridgeline behind the geodetic survey marker.

    Great for light rain days; still a little icy as of 5/15 but very manageable. Tram is still closed from the winter season. Beautiful hike through the boreal rainforest, would recommend for most skill levels.

    5/15/17: Could not make it to the glacier due to avalanche debris field. I would hold off until this melts off in a month or so. During the late summer this hike is a gem; lots of boulder scrambling and a glacial cave to check out farther in (if you're daring enough).

    7/9/17: Glacial cave is most likely no more; avalanche debris is covering it/destroyed it.

    Sarah Allyn reviewed Mount Eklutna via Peters Creek Valley Trail

    about 1 year ago

    5/6; Black bear sighting to the right of Mount Eklutna summit. Was snowing at the top, some trail still under considerable snow at the top (had to do some post-holing) but still doable. Trail was pretty muddy from Bear Point to the bottom but it was possible to stay just off the main path.
    Beautiful views and mostly quiet, loved that it was a loop. Will do again in summer.

    Still icy towards the top. 5/1 very windy and light snow. Beautiful alpenglow in the evening!
    A little rigorous but not bad; out of shape hikers should still be able to finish during good conditions.

    Slushy below treeline as of 4/21. Northern trail to peak still has spotty snow, but looks to be clearing soon. beautiful vistas and terrain to explore at peak; unfortunately you can still hear traffic from the top. Blacktails still covered in snow.
