Too many mosquitos, cut the hike short.

Hiking

First off, the stats on this trail are way off. We do a lot of hiking and would classify this as hard not moderate and the round trip is closer to 17 miles than 14. Doesn’t sound like a big difference until you factor in half the trail being a slow bushwhack and then very steep climb. Still worth the effort as the views are spectacular from the hut and glacier-more like Europe than most of Alaska. Spend two nights up there so you can day hike to Mint Glacier on day two.

Fist mile or so was beautiful next to the river and then we were swarmed by bugs constantly. We had sprayed ourselves down and our dogs. No stopping on the trail or you’d be covered in bugs! Me and my dog are covered in bug bites. Won’t be doing this one again.

Rocks and the moss is slippery wet, especially near the top where it’s pretty exposed.

This is a great park for easy treks that can be used all year long, if you are in the Anchorage area go for a stroll, take your dog, take your bike or go ski depending on the time of year. Beautiful area!

The best view is before you actually start the loop and a spot like 1.5 miles in. Trail was flooded so an alternative route was made. Markers for trail could have been better and more frequent. Lots of bugs. Did see some what I am assuming are moose tracks but no animals except for a squirrel.

The trail was great. Though a bit rainy, it was still perfect for walking. Not much of a view of the lake, but bring a sweatshirt in case of rain.

First to Review

Later part of the trail towards Tudor was under maintenance so watch out for cones and piles of dirt if you are biking

Hiking

nice trail overall, offers lots of different scenery throughout. was moderately steep in the beginning but leveled out. my only "complaint" would be that it was quite muddy near the end - i got to about 2.5mi and encountered a lot of really thick (quicksand-like) mud and lots of devil's club on the trail. turned back at this point because i didn't want to risk slipping into a bed of thorns! but overall great trail, definitely wear shoes that are okay getting completely wet and muddy. very lightly trafficked.

We did the entire trek to Mint Hut (~9 miles one way) and it was very muddy from mile 4 to mile 7 since it had rained the day before. After mile 5 the trail became very overgrown and no real upkeep. At one point we accidentally veered to the left and into some of the boulder fields.. we should have stayed closer to the river where we eventually found the trail again. Around mile 8ish (as you begin to go more vertical) the trail alternates between boulder fields and a muddy ‘staircase’ trail. You’ll see cairns if you’re headed up the right way (it does veer to the right side - take note because this is where some people end up going left up the boulder fields and don’t get back on the path to the mint hut). When you do get to the hut make sure you hike up the ridge to the right (past Jewel Lake, the first one you come to) and continue over to check out Moonstone Lake and Mint Glacier! It’s so worth the extra mile uphill! We also had our two dogs with us and they did great!

Trial was good. Watch out for the bumps caused from the repairs to the asphalt and the fastening points for barriers in the center of the bike trail. Some of them are marked by cone or spray paint

Easy walk/ hike. Lovely environment. Great length without much elevation change. I rarely meet anyone. A couple opportunities to shorten the trek.

It was really muddy, and if you’re biking beware of roots if you take the switch back or secret trail. Really spray up with bug spray, and be ready for some steep climbing back up.

Not the best route around the lake. It perplexed me as to why this is the official trail route. It is far from the most commonly travelled. The path along the east side that ventured away from the lake was a less used rooted and buggy path with so many interweaving and crossings foot trails that it was hard to determine the correct direction. I would recommend sticking to the more common route closer to the lake and then this is a 5 star trail.

Hiked on 7/18/20 If you’re going to the hut it’s about 9- miles out. The first 5 miles of the trail are very well maintained and the last 4 are very overgrown and very very muddy— 5ft tall bushes. You will have very muddy/wet boots but it is 100% worth it!
