Popular/busy location. Great views. Flat start with a decent incline to the top. Gradual decline at the start then it starts to pick up towards the middle of the descent. Ends with the same flat part that you started on. $5 parking fee

The hike is steep but well worth it for the views at the top. If you continue and do the full loop the difficulty is on the harder side of "moderate". The footing can be unstable and there are points where it's easy to miss a trail turn. When I went yesterday there were several people, including a large group, who didn't follow the leash rule and let their dogs run freely and unattended amongst the other hikers. Every time I've gone on this hike there are lots of people on the first half, but on the back half the crowds thin out and you get some alone time with nature.

Gorgeous hike! Nice and quick if you just keep
trekking, but longer if,you like to explore the rock outcroppings. Topped it off with a trip to the springs and a nice dinner.

Fantastic views once you make it to the top! The trail gets quite steep both up and down so be sure to wear proper shoes. It's a beautiful walk at the beginning with the river running to the left side making the temp nice and cool then warming up as you ascend - keep an eye out for blueberries if it's the right season!

A great hike - if moderate means some pretty steep slopes w loose gravel then on target. A great 3 hour hike that is no pushover but worth every view. See several rock formations, climb 1200 ft. It was great. An easy 52 miles from Fairbanks and right of the road

Excellent hike, but I highly recommend wearing/bringing bug spray. You can pick blueberries alone the way if they're in season. The views are absolutely beautiful. I was only worried about falling since the ground was muddy and I'm pregnant, but there's plenty to hold onto to prevent this.

It was a long drive from Fairbanks to do this trail. However this trail is well marked and maintained. This challenging trail will take you along the Chenna river then begin on a fairly challenging 8-900 vertical foot climb to the top. Cool rock formations and great panoramic views of the valley and surrounding mountains provide for a dynamic experience.
