What a crazy hike today. My wife and I hiked out to Mount Tucker, gusts up to 60 to 80 mph. Knocked us off our feet a few times. But totally worth it. It was us versus the mountain. Hike of grit and hike of determination.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful summit in the snow! A couple of steep parts that were difficult but worth it when you get to the top!

Trail was easy to follow even with some snow on the ground. Spikes were a huge help on icy spots! Pretty windy at the top and gorgeous views along ridge line.

Super muddy out there on the approach, as you gain elevation the ground freezes over with more traction

Bird watchingGreat!

This hike is quite steep, but worth the effort so many amazing views! Getting down from the top and back to tree line is a little difficult (very steep with loose rocks and a little mud) and I saw a couple folks fall and slide on their rear ends, so take it slow.

Pretty steep, not many switchbacks which contributes to the steepness but it is doable. Will be tough if you’re not in shape. Nice view at the summit and through some of the passes.

I haven’t heard of this hike too much, so I was surprised how beautiful it is. The views are stunning. If you keep going you can hit Mount Magnificent as well. I left like this was a safe trail as a solo hiker. The first .4 miles was in the trees, but it wasn’t dense and you could see a ways out. After that you’re above tree line. It’s kind of steep, but not bad compared to most Alaska hikes.

Kind of sketchy towards the top with how steep and slippery it was, but beautiful!

Great hike. Pretty steep and nice climb most of the way. A few false peaks before you get there and not a lot of shade. No parking fees at trailhead.

This was a great hike on a cloudy day. It was quite the workout at times, but well worth it. It was pretty breezy at the top, but nothing that wasn’t easily overcome with a light jacket/hoodie. Lots of tree roots going up through the woods. Would recommend for others. No sign of bears. Got to see a grouse on the way down.
