Pretty but the trail itself has lots of muddy puddles. ATV friendly so the trail is not so pretty for hiking.

Dont followed the directions All Trails gives you. We ended up in a residential area with no parking along with two others who were lost trying to find it. Follow Slaughter Gulch road to the end. You will get to the Bean Creek trail head. it's a beautiful hike from there.

Do note that the trail will be snow-covered for a bit longer than the front country of Denali. We did the trail on May 2, 2020. Most frontcountry trails had spots of snow, but the snow was melting fast. Once we started to climb on the Triple Lakes Trail, even in the first 500 feet, the snow was deep! And because of the warm temps, it was soft!! We had traction (Black Diamond spikes), which was helpful because there were a few dicy areas of ice. But we probably could have used snowshoes, although I honestly don't know if the snowshoes would have had the float we needed. We tried to stay in the moose tracks, but our strides weren't long enough. So we did a lot of postholing. It was a ton of work, and we had a 1-mile-per-hour pace, but it was a beautiful and different way to experience the Triple Lakes Trail.

easy trail. I like coming in From the Parks HWY side and ending in the Park. It's a steady 9 mile hike one way. Hiked it 10 different times in the summer of 2019. Saw Porcupines and moose. All 3 lakes have some great spots to rest and take in the views. Bring snacks and a good attitude :)

Good enough for a day hike when you did not get up early enough to tackle Verstovia or Bear Lake. Very scenic on a sunny day. Watch for bears, as always, when on a hike in Sitka. Try this one early fall when the salmonberries are in full production and there's no need to bring a snack. Bring a bathing suit mid-summer and splash around in a lake in Alaska. Or pack some light fishing gear/oars and hop in the boat at Heart Lake....

Nice trail, easy walking, we jogged some of the downhill parts. Made it from one side to the other in under 3 hours.

As of today, August 18, there were a couple of muddy spots, one washed out section of trail, and one section under water (but you can nimbly cross using a fallen tree, which adds to the fun!). The trail is well kept. Be aware that it spits you out on Parks Highway with nothing immediately close by. Either plan to leave a car, walk 6 miles back to Riley Creek Mercantile by highway, walk back to the canyon to catch a shuttle, or do the trail out and back. I did the out and back. I am not a fast hiker, averaging 2 miles per hour with stops for breaks, photos, and playing. So 19 or so miles took me 9.5 hours. Most of the trail is pretty easy. One section on the return is gradual incline for over 3 miles almost nonstop. That was a cardio workout! No bugs this time of year. Don't trust the weatherman if he says no chance of rain. Bring gear.

HikingMuddyWashed out

Did the whole thing out and back. Came out to a total of 18.8 miles, which I finished in almost exactly 7 hours. VERY muddy and it was raining when I did it so when you start to get close to the visitor center heading south to north, a few parts of the trail were completely underwater. Other than that, amazing hike. One of the best trails to hike if you want to see wildlife as they tend to congregate near one of the 3 lakes you’ll pass. Always cool to see moose taking a swim and playing around. Very windy on some of the higher sections so dress accordingly

This is a wonderful trail. We left from the park visitor center trailhead and headed south. The weather was far from ideal, constant August rain made for some very slick areas of climb and descent. There was also a portion of trail 1.5 miles from the visitor center trailhead that was completely submerged. If you're planning a rain-day hike, prepare to get your feet wet and layer accordingly. There was also a small rockslide at mile 4 but thankfully was still safely passable. This definitely added to the adventure of the hike. That said, the hike was well worth the effort. The views from the ridgeline, even in the clouds were incredible and the lakes were an excellent treat as you near the south end of the trail. We did the north-to-south single pass in about 5 hours with plenty of photo breaks, lunch and side-trail exploring. It's worth pacing just to take in the scenery. This is a must for anyone with basic hike experience. I'm far from in shape and though there were ascents that got my blood pumping, I was never completely winded. Add this to your Denali bucket list for sure!

Trail starts steep but with fairly good footing by rocks and roots. Some loose gravel. Nice view of the lake, town, an mountians.

This was the perfect way to (literally) step into some of the best of what Alaska scenery offers. Beautiful trail with lush greenery and a shimmering blue lake that's warm enough to take a swim during the summer months. Could have spent much longer exploring the offshoot trails, but the couple of hours around Dewey Lake will be forever remembered.

Hi All, This is not a review, Just wanted to check if Denali Village resort shuttle is accessible to all, even to people not stay at the resort? Thanks for the help!

If you want a great view of Skagway you just have a short semi-steep climb to get a great view over the boat harbor. As you continue on the lower Dewey lake trail, if you veer to the right you will have a straight walk to the end of the lake. As you come around the back side of the lake, it has a lot of large rocks that you have to traverse and a lot of walking over roots the entire way. . Probably not good for people who are not used to doing this type of activity.
