Very nice evening hike. The trailhead begins at Baldy and continues along the ridge line. If you go to the top of the peak it is 6.5 miles round trip and took me about 2.5 hours total. Very pretty views and a beautiful sunset behind the Talkeetna mtns. Little Tupperware with a notebook to sign at the top. Beautiful September evening with a wind chill at the top, so if hiking in fall bring gloves. Good for trail running back to the bottom.

It was great! Got some awesome pictures, great views. Lots of blueberries around this time (August). I'm pretty sure the directions on here are wrong. But we found it and loved it!

Great first impression for my families intro to hiking Alaska! We went on a very foggy day...couldn't see much at all but that kept the temperature cool. We left the trail after the Alders and went vertical...hearts were thumping and the tundra was soft to stride on as we climbed. Great experience!

Not for a newby to hiking and bring your poles, scrambling and ruff, oh but what an awesome view at the end.
