Great hike! Make sure your shoes have traction because some areas are quite slippery

My wife and I are not experienced hikers. We did this trail and took the tram down(it's free). It was an enjoyable but challenging hike. The trail is very well maintained. It does get continuously steeper as you go. First mile took us 20 minutes, second 1.2 miles took us 50 minutes. For two out of shape people from New Orleans it was a challenge but well worth it.

When we went hiking on this trail it was a little wet but other than that it was a good time.

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.

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.
