Mount Alyeska is a 2.6 mile point-to-point trail located near Girdwood, Alaska and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from June until August.
Moderate-to-difficult compared to other trails nearby. Walking up Mt. Alyeska is a 2,300 foot challenge, but the rewards are fantastic! Views of Turnagain Arm, the 7 glaciers of Girdwood Valley, and the Chugach Mountain range. Enjoy the day, and get out and play!
Beautiful hike! Scenery is gorgeous. The trail level itself I would say is pretty easy.
Gorgeous rainforest walk
Mostly up at the front end but gorgeous views. Glaciers, the channel, Girdwood: really beautiful. You can get up to the top of the tram.
Easy trail from the hotel to tram. Tram itself is out of commission.
Nice hike up Alyeska which was manageable for everyone, even my then 8 and 9 year olds. They loved this hike. It was a mysteriously foggy summer day that proved quite fun once reaching the top. We skipped rocks and enjoyed the foggy overlook. It was a nice, quick hike that we took on a whim while out at the Blueberry festival. We would like to do it again on a clear, sunny day.
