Beyond the foothills at Anchorage's edge lies the third largest state park in America - a half-million acres of some of the most accessible hiking, skiing, camping, wildlife viewing, snowmachining, rafting, and climbing in Alaska. Those of us lucky enough to live here feel the influence of Chugach State Park almost daily.

Great after work hike!

Nice challenge - views of the city are great. We had some cloud coverage at the higher elevation.

Popular trail, nice trail. Not extremely strenuous. More moderate than hard

Trail is currently closed due to black bear attack & death of a teen on 6/18/17.

Wouldn't call it difficult more like strenuous

Relatively easy hike. Pretty flat as well

Amazing views and a heart pumping hike. I made the mistake of not bringing water... do not make that mistake!!! Also another helpful tip, wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty, as there is a lot of climbing once you get closer to the top. This was my first mountain I climbed and it was definitely not easy, but do-able for most people. Also wear good shoes, because there is a lot of gravel and if you don't have shoes with grip, you will fall. Best in the summer time, for sure. Happy trails! :)

I love this trail!! Once you reach the end of the Football Field, you'll find Black Lake sitting right underneath O'Malley Peak.
