I love ridgeline hikes so this was a great time for me. Great views of Cook Inlet and into Chugach; Ptarmigan Peak and the Suicide Peaks are apparent and begging for attention across Rabbit Creek. This hike is great when the clouds are brushing the mountains.

Great view of the highway and some nice, rocky terrain that was less boring than the usual. Interesting to see the remains of past wildfires as well.
