Awesome hike, lots of beavers at lake 1.

Very long, but rather simple hike. The trail is easy to follow with many clearings which open up to the vast mountains surrounding you.
I recommend starting from the lake end (village end) Its more scenic this way and the last several miles will be toward the decline which will feel good after walking the 7 miles beforehand.
If your going to do this hike you really should take the paths to the individual lakes, otherwise you won't get as good as a view.

One thing, I expected the lakes to be larger, maybe it's just me but I can't help but compare the three lakes to three ponds. All in all, it's was still a very scenic hike with views galore.

Not a difficult hike, just a long one. If you're starting from the visitor center, you won't see much until mile 7 or 8. There's an incline, as well, for a few miles but it's gradual and very doable. Not a ton of foot traffic on the trail, so you pretty much have the trail to yourself. If you're doing it one-way, you can grab the free shuttle to go back to the visitor center.

great scenic hike. went after a good rain. everything was so green and wet. Loved it. I agree with the previous comment. Hard only in terms of length.

I'd rate this as hard only because of length, takes a good chunk of time to get to the end, but the trail is well maintained and not too hard. Bring a little cash to get the shuttle back, or be prepared to hitchhike.

hiked from visitor's center to Denali lodge on a clear day. Breathtaking views. 9.5 miles not too difficult with nice switchbacks. Very well maintained.

If you're looking for a trail that's less traveled at Denali take this one. It has great views as it rises in elevation. It's a good workout because the first part of the trail is all uphill if you start from the visitors center.

Excellent moderate hike. Start on the south side if only going one way.
