really pretty, fairly easy hike through gorgeous tall trees. although it may not be so easy for older/unfit people because it does have some incline.

This was my favorite hike in big, beautiful Alaska, which has many amazing hikes. My journey took me from Seward through Fairbanks, which included beautiful Denali. If you love thick, green rain forests like I do, you'll definitely love this trail! I know I did! The hand tram across the gorge is a very nice added bonus as well!

Great trail, very easy, no real big hills. Great for all ages. The trail starts behind Alyeska Resort right near the tram / ski lift. My wife and I checked in at the concierge desk and got a map and they informed us of a few closed trails so just fyi. There's a boardwalk for maybe .50 mile and the rest of the trail is very well maintained. The hand tram is about 2.5 miles from the start point. If your doing it by yourself, your going to get a workout. Lucky today there was 2 big groups on either end helping everyone across. 5 miles total. Definitely one of my favorite trails

great hike, the day was rainy so some of the trail was slippery. Beautiful

I was decently surprised by this hike! It's elevation isn't much but the hike through the forrest is stunning. It's close to Alyeska Resort and pretty easy so it's decently trafficked but this hike still manages to make you forget that you're within a 10 minute drive of Girdwood and not out in the middle of nowhere. The waterfall cascade is beautiful and powerful. The hand tram across the river is exhilarating and exhausting. I loved this hike!

Definitely an easy trail perfect for those who may not have the abilities to do elevations or uneven surfaces. Lots of blue berries along the way especially in the beginning.

Good easy hike. Saw many families along the way. It was pretty busy when we were there over the July 4 holiday weekend.

My fiancé proposed to me on this trail so it will always have a special place in my heart. The trail is beautiful & fun with a bridge to cross & the option of going on the hand tram. One of my favorite Alaska hikes.
