Beautiful day but clouds coming in scared me off from the peak. Winds changed and I had a great walk in the valley. Wish I wore my gaitors for light post holing.

HikingGreat!Snow

pretty easy trail. not really sure if I took any official route as there wasn't much trail in the snow to find but I made it to the the top and the views were great! the snow wasn't very wind blown or that packed so the spikes i wore weren't really needed but I would recommend bringing some with you.

Awesome hike! Bring poles and cleats for your boots, very icy on the switchbacks. Snowy all through the draw on the way up and some gnarly winds at the top, recommend a good face cover / goggles. Beautiful hike!

The new switchback trail is really nice and well done! The trail is covered in ice and snow. Micro spikes were a must!

Phase 1 of the new trail is complete. Where it ends is challenging. Termination dust is here bring cleats. Poles also recommended. As always fun and beautiful. Get ready to fall on your ass on the way down

Beautiful trail with view of Alaska range on a clear day. Could even see Denali! Steep at the top for a short period. Accidently forgot to end the recording - otherwise takes 2 hours. Ended up going a little further as well to the Lakes which was stunning!

Great trail because it’s less crowded than flattop and you get terrific views from the top. The climb to the top is tough because it’s steep and there was some loose gravel/rocks—a review said to bring poles for the way down and I’m glad I did!

Beautiful view but we hiked very late, it was very windy. Saw a dall sheep very close to us. I love all the different colors of the lakes. Specially the blue one. Beautiful sunset....

Gorgeous terrain but I’d rate this trail more difficult than moderate, especially the last 1.5 miles. Once you get to the top and stand on the patches of snow it’s worth it for the view (and sense of accomplishment!) however, bit tricky going back down, saw lots of people slipping because it’s steep

HikingBugsGreat!Rocky

I took my 8 and 13 years old children. They did great, we stopped many times for water breaks and blueberry picking, It took us about 2.5 hours to get to the top. We started around 4pm. We saw other hikers, but not as many as you see at Flattop. We made it down in 1 hour! Advice: bring walking sticks because when you go down, it can get pretty rocky. We each brought 1 water bottle and it was plenty. We saw a bull moose by the parking lot. No bears (which was great). I really enjoyed hiking this peak!
