Hardest part about this trail is finding the trailhead. The directions take you to private property. If there’s a way to the trail from Bean Creek Road, we couldn’t find it. We eventually found the trailhead that the end of Slaughter Ridge Rd. Parked about a half mile from the trailhead because the remainder of the road looked pretty rough. Recommend taking a 4WD vehicle to trailhead. Trail is nice and wide; two people can walk side by side the entire way. It is well maintained. Muddy spots here and there. We took this trail down to Juneau Falls; the falls are only another 10 mins or so and totally worth it!

We completed Resurrection Pass Trail Cooper Landing to Hope. We started at 7 PM on Friday, May 22 and we finished around 10:30 PM on Saturday, May 23. We camped on Friday night at a campsite just past Juneau Lake. We used maps.me for GPS, which mapped the total distance at about 36 miles. It was a beautiful hike and we really enjoyed it. There are 15-20 snow patches near the pass summit that involve some post-holing. None are very big, however, and the hike is definitely traversable without snowshoes/ crampons. Gaiters/ ankle boots would be recommended, but I anticipate that the rest of the snow will melt off soon.

A little bit of mud at the beginning, but otherwise a well maintained and enjoyable trail. The drive from North Skilak road to the trail head was super rough, but I passed graters on my way out. There is a lot of burn on the road, but the trail is clear. LOTS of bear signs and my daughter and two dogs had an encounter near the lake on the Skilak side of the loop. BIG black bear. Not aggressive, but not moving - I’m assuming she had Cuba that I didn’t stick around to look for. Highly recommend for now, be loud, bring bear spray and don’t go when the salmon are running.

Pretty easy hike, only took us about 5 hours to complete (including the couple times we stopped). Kept walking through webs on the way up though, was only mildly annoying! The waterfall was gorgeous! Parts were muddy, but we found a way to walk around it for the most part. Only slightly overgrown in some parts, so think about long sleeves! Also a few trees have fallen in the path as well but were mostly easy to get around/over.

easy hike/walk. good for visiting family, young kids, and people not used to alaska hiking but still want to get out.

quick and easy hike with some great views.

Ok hike. Still open to the lower lake only. Was hoping for better views and potential camping areas at the lake. However, the trail was well maintained and there were some good view points along the way. Id recommend Carter or Crescent lake trails to get the most bang for your buck.

Great trail for the family. 5, 7 and 10 year olds were able to walk it, definitely tired by the end of it. The Russian River Falls have nice observation decks. I thought the trail was very safe for kids I.e. no cliffs. There is a stream area where can kids can put their feet in the water if you like. We spent 3 hrs on the trail round trip. At times we were walking slow and other times at a quicker pace. Bathroom is available at the start of the trail but that is it.

Great trail, good for kids and dogs. Lots of people out, nice places for resting throughout the trail.

Was a great hike with amazing views. a couple muddy spots, but overall clear.

Trail is currently closed due to the Swan Lake fire 2019

Beautiful trail with breathtaking views. Would recommend but at the moment you need 4WD to get to the trail head. If you don’t have 4WD use the east entrance but it’s still questionable.

Just went on this hike today and it was an awesome sunny day! The trail was very muddy but it was worth the view at the top! The road getting to the trail was also very questionable.

Love this trail, do it every year. Still super muddy most the way right now, lake is gorgeous as the world end. Toddler friendly, my 4 year old can do it. Did the entire thing including a half hour break at the shore in 2.5 hours. That time is with going at my toddlers pace. No signs of bear right NOW but there were moose tracks. I only wildlife we saw was a rabbit and eagles down at the end, wouldn't want anymore than that :)

Still a decent amount of snow on trail. Muddy in a few spots and icy where exposed to the sun. But decent conditions overall!

Great trail condition. Crusty snow. Happy to be at the cabin now

March 29 2020 Went up to lower fuller lake for a quick hike with some preteens. Snow was still everywhere but temp was mid 20s, trail was packed 90% of the time and a pretty easy hike.

Nice weather, still some slushy, icy snow on the trail, but not too bad. We went to the bridge, ate lunch, and back.

Views are amazing at the top. Tons of berries and it is thick on the way up in the summer. Definitely worth the reward. Would do it again.
