Like another reviewer said, I wouldn't really reccomended this trail during this part of the summer because the cow parsnip is out of control. The view is nice but not anything you can't see from the Seward highway (which is all you can hear on the trail)

Nice short out and back, great views, a couple of minor stream crossings, would be best to do this hike early in the season before the cow parsnip grows out of control. Each end of the hike, whether you start at the Rainbow end or the Windy end will have you going uphill for about a quarter mile. We saw some Dall Sheep at Windy. The views are awesome, but I could see that one skiddish about heights might find this hike out of their comfort zone, as the trail can be narrow along a pretty steep drop at times.
