Muddy until you get past the tree line. Took about an hour up.

Trail overgrown a bit at the bottom, but a beautiful hike! Challenging steepness for my ability, but got some good cardio in this morning. Highly recommend!

Pretty steep the whole way up. Mucky for the first half so boots are very nice to have if you don’t want your sneakers messed up. Nice view of Anchorage and surrounding mountains from the top. Pretty gusty once you get out of the woods so a windbreaker is good to have.

It was harder than Mount Baldy (for us at least, as it was steeper). It took us about 4.5 hours from start to finish (we went slow and took many breaks with a longer snack break at the top). It starts off with thick shrubbery, then moves into a woodsy area with roots sticking out everywhere (they actually helped as the trail was muddy quite a bit in the woods). Then it’s tundra type terrain. The views are amazing as you ascend above the tree line. We saw a ship leave the port and someone paragliding the Turnagain Arm. It’s easier to get off track on the way back. We branched off to a different trail but were able to find the correct trail for our parking spot by referring to all trails map. If we didn’t have the trail map open, we probably would have ended up at a different trailhead.

This trail dog-friendly. Lots of over-grown shrubbery in the beginning. We saw bear scat on the trail so definitely recommend bear spray. I'd say this hike is more difficult and more steep than Baldy. Limited parking at the trailhead and signs indicating where to park (next to a private driveway).

Steep in some parts, the day we went it was very windy once out of the trees. On a sunny day with no wind it would be pretty hot, since there’s no shade for almost the last half of the hike up. Views were great. The trail at the beginning was bushy and overgrown, lots of mosquitos so make sure to have bug spray. Also can be hard to find a parking spot. There is only room for 3 or 4 cars.

Great views of Anchorage throughout and beautiful mountains once at the top. Uphill basically the entire way with the steepest being within the tree line. The trail is clear of snow and almost mud free save a few of the really steep spots. Poles would help with the incline. There is more trail past the peak but we did not continue on.

Great hike. It was pretty all the way up. The first half of the hike is pretty steep, but it is tree covered so the shade helps if it is hot. There is only about three parking spots available at the trailhead so get here early otherwise you might have to start at the Basher trailhead instead.
