Gorgeous trail - not for the faint of heart! Fairly clear from July through September, but has some nice snow patches for the rest of the year. The view at the top is gorgeous, with cabins up top and extended hiking options (Devil's Punchbowl being a very nice one). Took about 4-5 hours for us but we really took our time up top. Can be done in less if you're quite speedy. Good for a very active family - bring hiking boots!

I meant to say "...a free use Cabin" as we'll as a newer, nicer "cabin" available for rent.

A great trail that gets your heart going. About 2 miles all uphill, but well worth the effort. There's a free use at the top and also a much nicer one that you can rent (only around $20) from the Skagway Rec Center ahead of time. Makes for a nice over night trip. The bridge is pretty much the halfway point. Trail is well marked and easy enough to follow even in the winter.
