Pretty woodlands with Mountain Views. Albert Loop was closed due to bear concentration for salmon run so we kept our eyes out but didn’t see anything.

Great trail. Easy with some steeper climbs, nothing to extreme. Lots of variations of the loops. All parts pretty heavily trafficked and easy to discern.

Short and easy with great views. Definitely bear country. There's a detour for getting around the washed-out section, take it. We ignored it at first but then had to back track since the trail became flooded.

Nice flat trail. Great to bring your dog. Beautiful scenery. Definitely take the bypass as the trail is flooded. Walked with my 4year old, and older teens. We didn’t see any bear or moose.

We kept walking and made the trail into about 6 miles. We also cut over to the river and enjoyed the view. Stop in the nature center for the full trail map. Even the longer extended trail is flat and beautiful.

Easy trail, take bypass to avoid flooded area. Beautiful plenty of spots for the pups to get water along the way.

We couldn’t finish the hike through the river access do to trail being flooded, there’s a bypass, but we just back tracked to the car. Not a bad trail though

Pretty nice little trail, good for a day walk

My first review was for the 4 mile loop of dew mound. Today I completed the entire trail out to echo bend and looped around. It was amazing. I loved the back half of the rocky terrain and the varying shades and sunny areas. It was a fantastic day for the hike. However- I put my Apple Watch on as I walked out of my house. And completing the trail it said 8.11 miles and I had stopped it a couple times and forgotten to restart for a couple minutes after our breaks by the river. So I don’t think this 6.6 miles posted is activate at all. But, other than that- it was great. My dog loved it. The river was high and fast. We saw rafters, too! The last part of the trail is kinda sketchy as we came to a V and didn’t see markings. We veered right and went thru VERY overgrown areas and saw fresh poop (bear? Not nuggets or dog). We didn’t smell any bears and didn’t see any wildlife besides a squirrel, but we for sure were making noise and talking loudly.

1st alaska hike. it was pretty easy. rocky in some parts and a little muddy in others. we hiked from the station out and back in a loop. lots of bugs and a few people on the trail. we were able to see a black bear and her cub. thankful we did not have an issue with the bear. 1st bear encounter for my wife and I.

Excellent. Took a two year old... on my shoulders... and my six year old walked. The 10 year old Great Dane without any recent trail walking was able to finish, but it was a sweltering 92 degrees. Trail is rocky on the flat section that’s heavily trafficked. Biting flies are prominent along most of the trail, but deep woods kept them at bay. Dew lake is more like a murky pond.

Stayed on Albert Loop towards water and made my way there to find a Moose 15 yards from me. He knew I was there and went right back around me and went on the AL trail and ended up bedding down 20 yards off the path. Hiked 9-11pm

Super fun, not to bad of a path, mostly flat but some places have a lot of roots from the trees! So beautiful! We took a four year old and a 20 month old. They did well!
