Great short hike right in the beginning of the park. I could see Denali peaking over the top of the range. It was a perfect clear day though. I didn't think it was as hard as the reviews say. I'm not in super great shape, but average. Got to the top in an hour and explored further down the range.

This hike was awesome. It begins relatively easy but gets much more difficult as it gets higher into alpine. It's lightly trafficked and the view from the overlook is breath-taking. A narrow foot trail continues on for another half mile or so but this summit was well worth it and perfectly enough.

Pretty serious climb. but the view from the top is worth it. The trail is open and just about impossible to miss.

So beautiful and of course very tough. I would recommend dressing in layers and really push all the way to the top because it will be 100% worth it.

Incredible views of the Park. Better populated if your scared off by bear attacks in the park.

I did this hike years ago and I remember it was tough! Views are worth it but it is terribly windy at the top. Be prepared for intense elevation gain and some high exposure in places. Definitely recommend hiking poles.

This was a great workout! The incline was wonderfully challenging, and the view made the effort worthwhile. Only regret was not continuing on to the top of Mt. Healy! Will definitely be returning to this one!

Great view from the top. It gets progressively more difficult.

Beautiful trail, mostly incline on the way up with little level areas, worth the climb, view at the top is grand.

Steep but well-maintained trail that offers views of the valley at the entrance to Denali National Park.
