The route to Rabbit Lake is a long, moderate climb up an old road bed that eventually turns to singletrack. Your reward for the long climb is that the trail ends at a gorgeous alpine lake. The area is popular in the summer with hikers and skiers in the winter, so you'll likely not be the only one on the trail.

This is a great hike for beginners and intermediate hikers. Not for the extreme unless they want a leisurely hike. I like the incline at the first half and the level part on the 2nd half to the lake. Scenery is beautiful just like all of Alaska.

The temp was nice until we got deeper into the valley. It got really cold and really windy. The lake was still frozen and the edges were starting to melt. The most amazing sound I've ever heard is the sound of the ice moving and clanking against itself- so soothing, so mesmerizing.

I like it but it's a 4-5 hr hike. Sometimes windy. But a beautiful view on a sunny warm day.
