Good hike. Easy. Great scenery. Came here while camping at wonder lake. Would do again.

P.s. bring deet and mosquito nets. It’s worth looking crazy in exchange for not going insane

This trail shows off Denali taking you through tundra, which fades into a beautiful spruce forest. It ends at the huge glacier runoff where you can see Denali on a clear day. We went in the beginning of July 2018 and the Mosquitos were crazy bad. We sprayed several times with mosquito spray which kept them at bay. We never got bit but they were thick in some spots. It was so worth it because the views are amazing. I would do this trail again and again.

Well-kept trail. From the Wonder Lake stop you'll need to backtrack on the road 1/3 mile or so to get to the trailhead. In June the mosquitoes were HEAVY around Wonder Lake and at the river itself. Along the trail it wasn't AS bad, but still pretty rough. Don't laugh at the people with the mosquito nets on their heads, cuz you'll start wishing you had bought one for yourself. Amazing views of Denali if you get lucky with the clouds!

Lots of brambles and mosquitos, steep ascent, but amazing views especially of Denali on a clear day

The trail crossed several different types of landscapes and it was a fun trail to hike. The end of the trail is a river bank and it gives a unblocked view of Denali. Unfortunately it was cloudy when we got there. Saw footprints of bears, old though.
