HikingGreat!

Easy trail with a nice overlook on the lake! It’s super well maintained (at one point it’s a bit steep, but it’s actual steps) so I wouldn’t qualify it as moderate, but a rather easy trail! Didn’t see wildlife but you end up at a cute beaver dam, who knows, you might get lucky!

HikingGreat!

We did this following the mount Healy overlook trail and it was a nice & easy stroll. We were even lucky enough to see a moose and calf!

Really great hike, our group of 9 people and the age ranges from 53 to 7. We did the hike in 5 hours and that was with an hour lunch break at lake 3. The trail is very well maintained and no bushwhacking at all. There were no mosquitoes either, that was really nice. Lots of blueberries and raspberries were eaten on the way. We did not see any wildlife, I was okay with that. Lol nice family trail for any level really with a nice incline that was manageable for everyone. Happy hiking

Horseshoe lake is beautiful. No wild life seen. The trail is listed as moderate but was easy. There are well maintained steps from the trail head to the lake. You’ll get your heart rate up on the way back to the trail head.

HikingGreat!

Such a great trail! We started from the south end so we could see the lakes. The trail is very well maintained and easy to follow. The incline is gradual and not strenuous. This trail would be great for many abilities. Be on the look out for wildlife. We didn’t see any but did see a lot of moose droppings and hoof prints.

Lovely hike. Well maintained. Did it with our 3 kids, aged 7, 9, and 11. We hiked one way from the visitors center and then the Denali grizzly bear resort will shuttle you back to your car for a small fee, which is great.

HikingGreat!

My favorite trail on the recent trip to Denali. The views are incredible. Steady incline up and then down and not too bad on the knees. Plenty of time to spot beautiful wildflowers and ponder. If you have the ability, park one car at the end and drive to the beginning. Give yourself an extra hour and have a picnic at summit. Bug dope required.

LOVED this trail. Very scenic and easy to follow. There are some stairs, but well maintained and easy to climb. The hardest part of the trail was walking the stone along the railway in order to get to the trail head- lol! No wildlife in sight, but we did chat with some other Denali campers in the afternoon and they saw a moose! Keep your eyes peeled!

Easy, with nice walks in the woods, as well as around the lake, seeing the beaver dam and a female moose calmly grazing just off the trail.

This was an easy trail. The beaver dams were really cool and to see their work on the trees around the lake was very interesting. But Denali overall was less spectacular then some of the glacier hikes we did in alaska. It was steady with people even with Covid shirting most of the park buildings. We wanted to do savage river too but it was closed, too bad.

Nice easy & quick little hike! We saw a moose grazing in the water about halfway in. A little buggy but nothing unmanageable!

Easy short hike with kids, ages 4 and 7 years old. Trail was in perfect condition. The beaver dams were impressive.

Do note that the trail will be snow-covered for a bit longer than the front country of Denali. We did the trail on May 2, 2020. Most frontcountry trails had spots of snow, but the snow was melting fast. Once we started to climb on the Triple Lakes Trail, even in the first 500 feet, the snow was deep! And because of the warm temps, it was soft!! We had traction (Black Diamond spikes), which was helpful because there were a few dicy areas of ice. But we probably could have used snowshoes, although I honestly don't know if the snowshoes would have had the float we needed. We tried to stay in the moose tracks, but our strides weren't long enough. So we did a lot of postholing. It was a ton of work, and we had a 1-mile-per-hour pace, but it was a beautiful and different way to experience the Triple Lakes Trail.

easy trail. I like coming in From the Parks HWY side and ending in the Park. It's a steady 9 mile hike one way. Hiked it 10 different times in the summer of 2019. Saw Porcupines and moose. All 3 lakes have some great spots to rest and take in the views. Bring snacks and a good attitude :)

Did the trail about 3 weeks ago, it is a small trail but in the winter it can be very peaceful and nice, also didn’t see many people around. the lake was completely frozen and you can actually walk on it as well as the river. Did find tracks of animals but didn’t get the chance to see any. Easy and beautiful trail.

Did the trail in Aug 2019. Effort to reward ratio is max in this one as this one is an easy hike with breathtaking views. I was awed by the beaver dams. These fellas are so hardworking and build these amazing dams. There are multiple viewpoints with amazing views. Loved this one.

Very good hike. Not so tiring. Went to see the beaver pond. It was amazing how these animals do their thing. Hubby and me did not see any person. Truly enjoyed.

Nice walk. Not a hike. LOTS of evidence for beaver activity, but we didn’t see any beavers. Great hike for families with kids.

What a beautiful day! Same as others, if I come to Denali again, I will take this trail too. Enjoyable! A good way to take a look of Denali and this park. Easy trail. Take a walk and enjoy.

Hiking

Hike the trail each time we stay at Wonder Lake (7 times). Easy and enjoyable. Well maintained with new boardwalk over streams and mud prone areas. We go in late August/ early September. Good weather with great views of the whole Alaska range. Fewer bugs than at the campground. Never needed a net or repellent. Can be crowded especially when Kantishna area based resorts bring vans full of guests. Our group of 4 went in on a Thursday seeing only.4 others on the trail. Going up or down the Mickinley’s braids gives a chance to extend the hike and have more solitude. Wildlife viewing iffy. Blueberry and cranberry picking can be good.

Easy, high trafficked, maintained trail! Beautiful but too many people. Go in the morning or afternoon for seclusion.
