One of my favorites, just has too many people sometimes. It’s best to go early in the morning. Great views from the hand tram, I like to take my time on it but when people are waiting they do the work for you and usually go to fast to get any good pictures. The gorge is amazing

So many flies!!!!

Otherwise very pleasant.
The hand tram was fun although if you ask my dog he would disagree.

I found a Pokémon GO gym on the trail and put a snorlax in it.

Beautiful. Saw a black bear in the parking lot. Hand trolly was very cool. Fam of 4 took this trail and we loved it.

We went in May and there was still snow on the ground in places. Also the tram hadn't opened yet, bummer. But the trail is beautiful and easy to find

We hiked the trail from the Hotel Alyeska and found the beginning to be open and easy. The path was accommodating to hikers, runners, birders, families, and dogs moving in both directions. As you approach the gorge, the trail does become more challenging with steeper inclines and muddier pathways. A nice hike/ walk for all levels.

Excellent trail for families with kids of all ages. Trail was busy, we hiked it on a Friday, and there was a line for the hand tram. Expect a wait!

Great trail. Lots of fantastic nature elements. We were disappointed that the hand tram was out of service but it was still well worth the trip!!!! It is a flatter trail with some small hills.
