Definitely a challenging hike, but totally manageable when moving at your own pace.

This is definitely a hike that will challenge you. It can be very rocky and slippery both going up and going down. I would highly recommend shoes with some good tread on them, and maybe even gaitors to keep the grit out. On a nice day you’ll sweat a gallon. The weather changes after you get about halfway up so you might want to bring a windbreaker or light jacket. The views at the top are awesome!

Nice hike, more of a climb in spots. I'd recommend trekking poles if you're carrying a pack with any weight. Awesome views. Pretty loose in areas so use caution on the way down especially. Not a long hike but consistently steep with a few false peaks, you think the end is near only to find you've been duped by the mountain. Bring a light jacket as it's significantly cooler once you're above the alders and out in the wind.

2 mile in and out trail up Barometer mountain. Awesome 360 views of Kodiak, AK. Very steep and several stretches where you’re on all fours climbing almost vertical rock faces.

First to Review

One of the seven summits from the Kodiak Island Seven Summit Challenge. Alaska.org: Barometer is is Kodiak’s most popular mountain, and for good reason: It’s a challenge, the views are stunning, and it feels like a true mountain climb—there’s a 2,073-foot elevation gain in just a few miles. A well-trod trail leads up the ridge, which you can access from the end of the airport runway. Follow an old gravel road to the northeast ridge, where a trail breaks on your left. The first part runs through the brush, but you’ll break into open alpine terrain quickly. Wildflowers coat the valleys and cling to rocky outcrops, and views of the coves and bays below are gorgeous. If it’s good weather, consider bringing a tent and spending the night at the top. You’ll want a water filter, but alpine lakes and snowmelt are good water sources.
