Nice, easy to moderate trail. I hiked alone and was nervous, a lot of brush but great views and pleasant scenery

really easy trail. great views too.

Was with my 77 y.o. mother and she was able to walk this trail without a problem. We just walked part of it from the visitor center back to Riley Creek Campground. One spot we went down was a little steep/rocky where she might have had a little difficulty had we been going uphill, but would have been able to make it.

Nice and easy. The wildflowers and birch give a nice accent.

We used the trail to walk to the park sled dog demonstration. It's an easy trail to walk even with the elevation changes. There are some great views of the valley along the way.

The best way to get out to the sled-dog kennels without hopping on a bus. And a few spots for a decent view.

Nice forest walk. Better trails should be explored first. Skippable.

Taiga trail is not really a hiking destination trail. It is an access trail that links other trails.

We started by the park headquarters / sled dog area and hiked down toward the visitors center (and then up another trail). This is a decent hike... we used it more to get from point A to point B and then back again. It was fairly busy in the early afternoon and then more quiet in the evening on our way back. There is one area with a bench and great view of the surrounding area. We did see moose droppings a couple of times along the hike, but we didn't actually run into any large animals.

Nice trail right above the Park Road between Headquarters and the Visitor's Center complex closer to the entrance. You hike up about 600 feet for a commanding view of the river valley and the Alaska Range on the far side. There are spectacular views of the Railroad trestle over Riley Creek. At the high point of the trail there is a bench to rest and take in the views. A really nice 2-3 hour walk.
