it's like I'm a kick-ass Billy goat jumping across all the rock formations. Love this trail.

Great afternoon winter walk. We took an hour and a half doing the loop. Pretty busy with fat bikes and cross country skiing but not to the point that it took away from the walk. No animal sightings. I look forward to walking this trail in the spring and summer!

Went there on January, it was snowing a lot, it got pretty hard, but amazing hike

I loved the trails but a little overwhelming as to which one to go on, they do have maps ect though. Beautiful scenery and quiet, but not too quiet if you're a person hiking solo you'll feel safe.

Nice Easy Hike from Alyeska Resort to the Hand Tram that is (unfortunately) CLOSED IN WINTER.

Wonderful little hike especially for children and dogs ❤️

Wonderful hike

used spikes because of enough ice under snow pack, but didn't need snowshoes. only person on trail, but trail is clear and easy to follow. fun to hike from downtown Juneau to the top of mountain and back to town for a good cocktail afterwards. view from top would be epic if the snowfall and wind came in during the missed of hike.

I did this hike a couple summers ago. It was a tough hike but was totally worth it especially on a clear day. I did it in late August and a flock of about 30 sandhill cranes flew over top of us as they were heading back south for the winter.

Great for all levels and abilities. Beautiful scenery, well groomed and quiet.

a buddy and I made this climb on 27 Dec 2017. Great hike......I recommend crampons for the decent. The views and silence were amazing.....we also saw some goats near the summit.

Great trail to get a workout on

Great, quick, family friendly hike. Little out of the way to reach but worth it. Trail was maintained and easy to hike even in tennis shoes this time.

My favorite hike

The view is phenomenal. Hike is hard, so it'd be better if one is physically active.
Carry good amount of food and water and avoid hiking in rain if you don't have proper supplies.

My favorite hike ever

Hiked on 2-10-2018 for the first time. Just moved here from GA, no experience with hiking at all. This was our first hike here in Alaska.

It took my boyfriend and I about 3 hours to complete. We brought our 10 month old in the baby backpack. We kept a nice slow pace, pushing through a couple times on the steeper parts. Weather was nice, however the sun was not out this day. Once we got about 100 yards to the summit I decided to hang back on the rocks with baby. Basically 2 options to the summit - fresh deep snow or rock scrambling. I was not comfortable with either. Boyfriend did reach the top. It started snowing and was quite foggy at this point. Still a beautiful experience. We wore our micro spikes for extra traction - not much ice at all. However we found ourselves wishing we had trekking poles. Met 5 pairs of hikers along the way, 3 of those brought their dogs along. It was a great time.

one of my favorites. quick challenging day hike with killer views

Simply amazing. Completed on 2-10-18 at the peak of winter! Slight overcast in the morning, but a great day weather-wise. After you make it to the rock pyramid it's a whole new ball game...we hit the summit (being led by mountain goats part of the way) and could see O'Malley, Tikishla, Mount Williwaw, Knoya Point, and 'ol trusty Rusty. Mt. Susitna was clearly visable, and was another reference as to how far back you have to go to reach the peak.Views were spectacular! You really get to step back and see Anchorage and Fire Island in a picturesque manner. McKinley (Denali) and Foraker were veiled...

This is a must. I’ve hiked the trail twice and it’s absolutely amazing! So many different landscapes and tundras.

Best time to hike it is July/August. If you go in May or June you’ll be hiking in snow on some sections of the trail. I’d also recommend hiking it in a few days (I did two nights three days) that way you can enjoy the amazing lakes and views.


It was a beautiful clear day! I just ran out of light so I wasn’t able to explore quite as much as I’d liked to have.

Was a lot of fun to do once but I wouldn't do it again unless I wanted the exercise, there's really hardly any views until you get to the top. Worth going once for sure.

A most beautiful place

Hiked 1/21. Lots of snow, trail splits off at one point where you follow the main trail or just a track of footsteps, but both will get you there. A lot of post holing. Easier if you’ve been to the lakes and know where they are.

Lots of fun and beautiful scenery! Cleats necessary this time of the year.

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.
