The trail was well groomed and taken care of. Although there was a lot of dog poop on it which is pretty annoying. There wasn’t a lot of wildlife. We saw a white rabbit and ground squirrel. The views are pretty fantastic. I have only done it in winter so I can not compare to summer. I will be back this summer to do it again though. Over all it is a pretty good day trail for all the family young to old.

Amazing views. Trails are packed down and icy, but passable without grippers. However, grippers are highly recommended.

I've snowshoed this trail but today I walked it. there is a section closed for flooding at the river. the trail was clear and packed down and easy to navigate. some spots are slick but no crampons were needed. chilly, 5°

Some nice viewpoints. Saw a school of salmon and bear scat but no bear. Forest is nice giving you some shade, some sun. Easy hike.

Super pretty! Makes for an easy walk. Pretty much flat, graveled road the whole way. The signs do a pretty good job keeping us on the trail. One turn was a little hidden because it wasn’t paved.

The best view is before you actually start the loop and a spot like 1.5 miles in. Trail was flooded so an alternative route was made. Markers for trail could have been better and more frequent. Lots of bugs. Did see some what I am assuming are moose tracks but no animals except for a squirrel.

We spent a week in Alaska. This was hands-down my favorite hike. Flat and easy. Amazing views. The guide at the Nature Center was very helpful.

Only made it 2/3 of the way through the trail. People coming from the other direction encountered for black bears, so I turned around and headed back the other way. The views along the way are very beautiful. Some are absolutely stunning!

Great trail. We hiked it on 5/23/2020. Family of 6 with various fitness levels. This was a great match for us. Beautiful lookouts at a few locations, mostly a trail through the woods. Very pretty views throughout! Muddy in some areas but nothing too bad.

It is always a good walk when we come here. Today was rainy the whole time but not bad. As they say in Alaska - never bad weather, just bad gear. We had the right gear and enjoyed it. By the river there was a small area where we had to step over/hop over the water. We went out by the river for a little bit and skipped rocks. We even got to see a small black bear sleeping up in a tree. Great easy hike for Memorial Day.

Muddy in some spots, but overall clear. Loved the benches along the west side of the loop. Breathtaking views of the mountains, especially with the majestic clouds surrounding them. Saw one moose along trail and lots of bear poop. Will definitely be coming back soon!
