Nice easy hike through beautiful wooded area... but the roots are terrible! Wear proper shoes to support your ankles and be careful on the hills.

A lovely little hike that I was able to do with my 70 year old parents. It checked all the boxes we were hoping for in a hike — great views, lush forest setting, wildlife (bald eagle sighting!), manageable trail, a beautiful stream, and even some fun surprises like a cool old wreckage of some sort. The only downside were the mosquitos!!! They were awful! Be sure to pack bug spray!

nice view from the platform. I like the view on the flats better myself. It wasn't a problem for me but there are a lot of roots in the trail so pick up your toes. The time of year I was out on this little trail there were swarms of flies and mosquitos so bring your bug spray or wear the righ clothes.

very nice trail not to hard ...

The view is as always gorgeous, just make sure to wear proper hiking shoes / boots as it’s still pretty muddy in the end.

It was a nice a walk. It has a nice view and even not being there long we saw an eagle. I'll definitely go back in the summer or spring to see what other birds are in the area.

This trail is used most often by locals. The trail is well used and wanders through heavily canopied trees. Most of the wildlife will be of the bird variety, and as you walk along the bluff that overlooks the Hayflats, you will hear Sandhill Cranes in their summer migratory area in addition to other migratory birds. There is currently one eagle's nest along the bluff area of the trail. In addition, if you look carefully, you will see the remains from old Native American lodge sites and cache pits. The real beauty of the trail is the overlook site about 100' from the parking lot where you are rewarded with beautiful views of the Chugach Mountains and the Palmer Hayflats.
