Didn’t make it as trail covered with snow and needed snowshoes. Will try again. Beautiful views

Not too crowded today. The gate to Independence Mine is closed so you have to walk from the lower parking lot to the trail head. The snow line was just below where the trail joins the main road. About 1-2 inches of snow but very easy to walk.

Road was closed, but still a nice hike.

Love this hike. Took an hour to walk and explore the history of the mine.

Gold cord is a really nice hike to start exploring hatcher pass. There are two different parking lots to access the trail. The closest one to the trail head is at the top near the old mining buildings. It has an $8 fee right now and closes at 6:00pm. If you don't want to pay or want to hike later you can park at the lower lots but will have to walk up the road about 15/20 minutes. Make sure to give yourself time to hike down before the parking lot closes, there are signs that they will impound all remaining cars and a slightly manic sounding park ranger with a mega phone to give reminders of closing time.

Not sure who is in charge of this app and naming this place, but there is No "fishook" Alaska. There is Willow fishhook Road and Palmer fishhook Road and Wasilla fishhook road, which are located in Palmer Alaska and Willow Alaska. There is no fishook Alaska. now that that's cleared up I'm going to go hike this Trail!

Beautiful lake, hike was fun.
