My wife and I hiked this trail on Sept.7 and the fall colors were fantastic. We really enjoyed the hike, saw 4 bull moose, 2 cow moose and 7 Dall Sheep.
The hike was easy.

I've been wanting to go for a low altitude hike to avoid the snow and ice. Decided to check out Williwaw Lakes, and got all that I asked for and more. Gorgeous hike.

Easy day hike with beautiful views of Anchorage (first stretch) and chances to encounter Dall sheep.

Great views of Anchorage and, on a clear day you can see Denali. There are some amazing spots to camp at the lake. In the morning we had coffee with the sheep.
