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.

Having never done this trail before, my friend and I were a bit confused by all the unmarked trail turn offs and weren't positive on which ones led to the top. But once we figured it out, it was a great hike. Quite the workout for anyone not used to hiking (or out of shape like us) but perfect for getting your heart rate up for a few hours. The views made it well worth it. Swarms of annoying bugs at the very top though.

Went with a friend and made plans to come back again when it's nicer

great trail with awesome views. definitely not easy though!

Easy walk where you can get right up to the glacier. Beautiful views of the mountain range with many other hanging glaciers that are visible. We even walked onto the glacier.
