We went up the south side (I believe...), the parking lot was just before the Reindeer Farm. They ask for a few dollars to help with the upkeep which I think is fantastic as it... read more

We went up the south side (I believe...), the parking lot was just before the Reindeer Farm. They ask for a few dollars to help with the upkeep which I think is fantastic as it provides some assistance for them to keep things going. After a 40 min hike to the top, we saw views that were gorgeous. Fitting for... More

found out after I hiked that there is a stair side. Next time I will try that one, although I enjoyed the trail. The views are breath taking and cant wait to go in the summer

It's rather quick hike the whole family can enjoy. We hiked the north side. The trail is good. Great for first timers or for families with smaller children.

Great little hike the whole family can take. You can hike the south side which is steep, or the north side that has a good trail, but takes longer.

I have made this hike many times and takes my breath away in beauty now the hike too. Bring rain jacket and water with your camera. Make sure your camera battery is charged with room for tons of pictures.. Watch for bush planes flying around the mountains and towards Knik/Colony Glacier. The Air Force does fly by rarely but a...

There are two sides to choose from when wanting to climb to the top. Not a big parking lot on either side. Make sure you have a camera because once you get to the top you will want to take lots of pictures.

Good paring area, and usually very clean and cared for trail. Great little outing for the family and less experienced hikers

We did this hike after going a helicopter tour to Knik glacier. Maybe our enjoyment of this hike was lessened by having just done one of the highlights of our vacation but we found this hike to be very average. We hiked up the "dirty" side, it lived up to its name and the hike was steep, dusty, and hot... More

A pretty ride down the old Glenn hwy takes you right to this little gem. Actually the old Glenn past the eklutna tail race through the little town of Butte is amazing. The old cars rusting out there will stun you. Back to the hike. Matsu Parking is 5.00 per day but that's the same for state parks. The walk... More

Awesome hike with great photo opportunities. Good parking area and very safe place for everyone. It is even a good place to take your dogs.
