The Eielson Alpine Trail is a very steep hike of around 1,000 feet. The trail is a bit less than one mile one-way, up Thorofare Ridge. The views are particularly impressive on clear days!

The views were amazing the entire way up this trail. The ascent was pretty steep, but was all switchbacks. Reaching the top was breathtaking and very windy. Views of Mt. Denali were unbelievable especially if you are lucky enough to get a clear day.
