fun trail! shorter than anticipated if you do the first, small loop (1/2 mile total). clockwise, it's uphill then down. there's an opportunity to add another 2.9 miles (each way) to the loop.

Easy trail, $5 for parking, bathrooms on site. After the first 1/2 mile or so it levels off pretty nice. Nothing too steep or crazy. Several good areas offer great views of the water. A few people said they saw a few bears in the area however we didn't see them. So just be careful. Trail goes all the way to McHugh Creek so you'll have several miles of nice views and very wooded.

Nice trail with a few good look outs. Saw a moose and a black bear with a cub well off the trail. Muddy patches, but totally passable. Lots of people on this trail.

The section from McHugh Creek to Potter Marsh was closed today (5/31/16) due to a bear feeding on a moose kill.

It was great and easy, I had my puppy with me and she loved it to. We go pretty much twice a month.

Easy trail hike. We went from potters to rainbow and back. Ran into 4 black bears which included 2 cubs, definitely be alert. Great views of the arm for sure.

Used to hike this and then head to the long burned down Bird House Tavern. In case you remember the Bird House and are sad to see it go, it has been recreated by part owner, Chilkoot Charlie's on Spenard Rd. in Anchorage. It will amaze you how well they recreated it. Okay, back to the trail. Hike it. The view is much better from the highway and you will feel better about leaving your car behind.
