Good afternoon hike

must see if you’re near Seward

Loved this trail! We did it while I was pregnant. Beautiful views

Easy hike! Very well maintained trail. Not what I would consider a true hiker’s trail as the path is clearly marked and there are several man made assists. If you continue past the upper lake you’ll get to Devil’s Punchbowl.

Amazing once you get through the crowd of people at the beginning picking berries. Pretty steep all the way up. Once at the top, the trail continues along the ridge where you can see everything!

Great trail, well used. Wide, flat, smooth.

Super pretty. First timers should pay $100 for the guided tour and equipments rental. Could be muddy, slick and dangerous. Stay safe and have fun!

Recommend bringing trekking poles. Very steep on the way up, if you take the right entrance. Left side could be used for both up and down if you don’t mind walking a little longer and stay on the safe side. Amazing view on the top though! Could be a great work out trail!

So much fun doing this hike today! This is my all time favorite trail. Just make sure to wear good hiking boots and good mood. Expect to get muddy or wet on the legs. Pretty rocky and fun hopping around. Beautiful scenery will not disappoint you as you put work into the hike. Parking is $5 cash. Would bring truck since the way up is kinda rough. Bring lots of water to drink. Snack may not be a bad idea since it took 5 hours for me and my husband to complete the hiking. Will do it again!

Easy trail for the whole family. Hand tram is fun but bring gloves. No steep hill.

Good trail! Walked in casually with friends at a leisurely pace. Taking our time, we got to the top in just under an hour and the views are definitely worth it!

Fantastic hike!! definitely not for the faint hearted, the walk is pretty steep and the air gets very thin but it's worth it for the views! FYI the ski lift looks like its shut but there are two so keep walking down and you'll see it; $15 for a trip down - we were dead on our feet so were more than happy to grab it. Lots of wasps around the top for anyone allergic. A must hike!

views can't be beat

Great views of Eagle and Symphony lakes. There are about 3 campsites down towards Eagle lake and 3 or 4 more down near Symphony lake. You cannot camp in or near the shelter because of terrain. There is one tree for shade in the area. If camping there in the summer, bring your own shade. The rock scramble easily adds a few miles worth of effort to the hike.

Great trail with outstanding views the whole way. Watch your step & Take your time. Bad knees should avoid as the downhill is steep.

Nice trail surface for walking or trail running. Wet spots likely in rainy weather. Groomed for Nordic freestyle and classic skiing during the season. Options for longer loops on UAF trails, though some can be swampy!

16 Aug 2018 - Flat and well maintained trail. Perfect trail for walking the pups, great scenery, lots of pollen flying from the fireweed, smooth trail to run, and pretty awesome to watch the planes depart/arrive! Saw a couple people on bikes as well, it’s a pretty wide trail to easily share.

Hiked this trail last Sunday. Weather was beautiful, but did not realize how humid the climb would be! The first couple of miles is definitely rain forest, heavy canopy and occasional wet/muddy spots. The last mile started to open up with views and a breeze. Made it to the summit and back in 4 hours 21 min. - but I was not in a hurry. Great workout, my legs hurt for a few days afterward. I hiked this trail as I was solo on my trip and wanted a trail with other hikers. Not busy at all, but good to see another hiker once in a while. I only rated this as a 4 because I was hoping for more views along the way. The summit was well worth the trip!

Theres a hidden switchback that takes you right up to the glacier. Absolutely breathtaking.

very easy hike with wide trail. great views of the salmon swimming up stream.

Epic. The hike was perfect, brought my dog... she’s pretty worn out from it but she loved every minute of it out there. Being on the Glacier was something else. I highly recommend this hike.

Great hike! History everywhere. Great views, if the weather cooperates. We had steady rain on our trip, except when we approached Chilkoot pass. Then the sideways rain hit us so hard it bruised our faces! But I didn't mind. It made me appreciate the original gold-seekers' experiences in 1897.
I'm a heavy hiker and I did the trail in day hikers. I damaged my feet on the rocky moraine leading to the pass. Please consider hiking boots.
Day 1, to Sheep Camp.
Day 2, over the pass to Happy Camp.
Day 3, finish.
We flew to Whitehorse, took the bus to Carcross and the White Pass & Yukon Route train to Skagway. If that works with where you're coming from, I recommend the train. It's a great part of the overall trip. And check out Dawson City when you're done, too.

Finished the infamous Chilkoot with my husband of 38 years and 11 adults and 3 teens after 4 nights in the trail: Canyon City, Sheep Camp, Happy Camp, Lindamen Lake & sad to finish...

great stroll, highly recommend

easy and fun, great totem poles and fun to jog through

Nice simple hike. Bring shoes you can get wet if you want to reach the falls
