Gorgeous!!!!! Just be cautious with little ones as there’s a lot of steep drop offs. You have to scramble over roots a bit but not much.

Beautiful walk in the woods! The actual trail is off slightly from where All Trails tells you to go but it looks like they’ve done some work on it recently and built a new(?) bridge so that could be why. The trail meets the river several times along the second half mile. We took our cameras for a spin which is why it took us so long. Awesome trail for kids and senior dogs. Some mud but not much. They also do NOT allow fires here anymore and the parking area is massive and currently has one port-a-potty. Bring bug spray. 5/30/20

Easy walk to scenic glacier. Shallow enough river for young kids to play in safely. We got caught in a little rain and wind, but overall well worth it and doable.

Attempted this trail on Thursday, the beginning of the trail is pretty obvious with a rocky walkway up, once your get to Jonny’s express, there’s no clear trail and still a lot of snow. Never made it past this. It is 100% up hill so took lots of breaks. I’m definitely not a pro, but it doesn’t look like the trail is maintained much outside of the race this is used on. Couldn’t find the exit point for where the loop meets up with the trail downhill again. You can continue on to chair 6 trail and get down that way, but we just went back down the same trail. Bear scat on the trail as well, don’t forget your spray!

Perfect short trail, completely free of snow, well marked and more like a walk in the woods. The waterfalls are beautiful, perfect if you have kiddos with you. As you get further up to the trail lots of devils club so careful there and stay on the trail.

Perfect family and pet friendly trail! Lovely ride in. Plenty parking. Easy to navigate as you are following a gorgeous water fall. Cool rocks to climb on and awesome photo ops around every corner! A few muddy places that can be avoided. Clean trail! Like walking into a fairy tale! The air is cool and the shade is nice. Hardly any mosquitos! Plenty places to feel like you’re in your own area while others are on trail. 10/10 recommend- even though it’s rated, “easy” it’s just as fulfilling and rewarding as a hard trail!

It was my first time- it was cloudy and rained the whole time. Ha. Its only about a mile to the end of the trail then we hiked across the snow to the rocks and climbed over them. The trail is nicely groomed and very easy.

The trail was really great to the falls, there were a couple muddy parts, but not bad. Lots of greenery and the falls were beautiful.

Super muddy but it’s currently raining so that’s no surprise. Recommend wearing your toughs as it’s an easy walk. Lots of roots but great views.

Trail mostly dry, some mud on the California Creek side 5/15/20. Saw 2 tree'd bear cubs by the bench & mama was curious but not aggressive. Also startled a mama moose and older calf at the start of the boardwalks, mama was very comfortable with human presence & took 20 minutes to get off the trail. Bring your bear bell, bear spray, and common sense!

This is a really flat, easy trail. There’s still snow, but we were fine in normal hiking shoes. It could be good to have spikes if you want them. It’s sad how far back the glacier has receded.

My location tracking takes you to end of chutes and ladders

Great trial! Random patches of snow still but not too bad! Hand tram is closed right now though.

Looks like this one is just about mud-free at this point! Went in about 4 miles, found the trail to be in great shape so far. If you are looking for vast, grand views, you may be disappointed until the last stretch of this one. Were it not for the trail, this would be a closed canopy forest, and the moss-blanketed forest floor on either side of the trail was reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest. There were fleeting views of Penguin Peak, The Nest, and Bird Ridge throughout the beginning of the trail. Bring your Alaska State Parks Pass or pay the $5 fee at the trailhead. Be prepared for mosquitoes, as they were beginning to come out. Also, keep in mind that salmon make their way up Penguin and Bird Creek, so bears will be in the area throughout summer and especially fall. I wouldn't stray too far from the ATV trail unless you've brought your bear spray and you know how to use it.

View of waterfall was gorgeous! But trail itself was horrible. Icy, roots everywhere, super muddy, some places you can barely make out what's trail or just wilderness, luckily it's super short. Would NOT recommend letting your littles walk this if you have a backpack for them as an option.

Beautifully maintained trail! Quick and easy, got just about all the way down to the hand tram before encountering an angry moose before we turned back. Can't wait to do this again.

Definitely snow covered and lots of places where you fall through the snow up to the waist (near the rocks that you need to climb over). We had to carry our 50# dog over the boulders but it was a lot of fun!. Didn't make it to the glacier due to watching 3 avalanches come down.
