Well traveled and beautiful views all around. Gets pretty winding toward the top ridge and cold. Good climb and distance is about right for a moderate hike.

Gentle walk around the Eielson Visitor Center area and a good way to stretch your legs after the long bus trip. Lots of alpine flowers. On a clear day there are wonderful views of Denali.

Beautiful hike. We went with a Ranger and she was really informative while keeping the hike to a gentle pace. It does have quite a bit of elevation gain, but the trail is good.

Awesome views of Denali, if you’re in the area and happen to be backpacking, try to catch a view early in the morning. Got some awesome pictures of the summit up there.

The trail is somewhat steep, but the views at the top are amazing. There is a great open area at the top that you can explore, with 360° views. We did the Ranger hike, which was very informative. After the Ranger set us loose, we spent an hour at the top, which was awesome. Highly recommended.

Amazing

Highly trafficked and you'll want to go between bus loads

Mountain Vista Trail is the site of an old campground from back in the 1930's. The surrounding area is mostly flat, with mountain views in the distance. This is not a hiking destination, but is a nice walk through the valley of Denali Park. It is worth doing, if you happen to be stopping to use the restrooms at the trailhead. I would not make it your main plan for the day.

The views were amazing the entire way up this trail. The ascent was pretty steep, but was all switchbacks. Reaching the top was breathtaking and very windy. Views of Mt. Denali were unbelievable especially if you are lucky enough to get a clear day.
