Was blessed with great viewscape weather for the undulating hike. Just visiting for the 4th so no clue of what to expect. Breeze kept most of the bugs away. I was not sure which spur went to the top, so I took the first steep drain trail up to the marmot rocks and then scimed along the gusty Ridgeline to hit all the peaks. I bushwacked
down to find the main trail back. Lots of mud on the northeast side of the first crest. Outstanding 360 panorama including Brooks range and sweet dreams of ANWR.

It’s a wonderful hike with a good trail! The lower area can be muddy though, so bring better shoes. No snow in the higher elevations anymore

Good times. We only went about 2 miles up the trail. The snow was waist deep. Bring your SNOWSHOES! :-)

Moderate pace to the top doable in under 1.5hrs. Recommend wearing boots due to the muddy areas especially in lower elevation.

One of my favorite hikes in this area!

not a hard trail! who rates these?! the trail can be a bit muddy in the low spots but you quickly climb to alpine, easy hiking. definitely bear country, be prepared. lovely wildflowers in June and great views any time. a nice day hike from Fairbanks.
