Talkeetna, Alaska Map

I went up along with my 60 year old friend and I'm in my mid-twenties. Anyone can do this if they take enough breaks! 2 hours up 1 hour down for our trip

Amazing views of the big one. We did not have time to do the full ridge but we wanted a view of the mountain - and this delivered. Highly recommend!

Forest and flowers: notice the change in elevation how the foliage shifts. Nice uphill. Great view. Easy return with interconnected trail system near the visitors center to make it a longer walk.

Great trail. Switchbacks most of way up with unbelievable views at the top. Well worth pushing through to get to the top.

Worth the climb! We will be back

Awesome hike with an amazing view at the top! Worth it!

Great hike and beautiful views. Once you get to the top you can travel across a few more mtn tops.

Great trail! Straight up and straight back. Got to the top and lots of thunder. Scrambled down and went to the campgrounds at Byers Lake to get some shut eye.

Nice little walk. Beautiful day!

Did this last July. Had a great time until we got to what we thought was Long lake. The sign was not clear and tipped over and we ended up on the Ermine Hill trail. Way too many bears in a fairly unkept trail for my taste.

Gorgeous views, well maintained trail
