Lock your vehicle

Thefts are rampant in this area. Lock your car, take valuables with you. Gorgeous lookouts. Be aware of wildlife. Situational awareness is important.

My husband hiked Flattop Mountain while we vacationed in Anchorage. He enjoyed the hike and said the trail was pretty good. I stayed in the parking lot area and read while overlooking a beautiful view of Anchorage in the distance.

We have never make it up really far on the trail yet so far, but the view is just fantastic. When our daughter gets a little bit older we'll go up the trail for sure

The Flattop Mountain trail has a total elevation of approx 1,350 ft and is a 1.5 mile elevated walk. You can park in the carpark at the start of the trail for $5.00 where there is restrooms but nowhere to buy water. It is a very windy and steep walk especially towards the summit where it becomes quiet unstable due... More

This is always a beautiful place to visit! My boys loved it! It was freezing and a high wind advisory was in place. One of my favorite places in Anchorage.

We had about two days before our land tour/cruise began so we decided to drive up to Flattop Mt kind of on a whim. We didn't go there until mid-afternoon and even with the long daylight, I wish we would have gone sooner in the day. We had some things scheduled in the evening so couldn't stay as long as... More

This is a quick trip from anywhere in Anchorage. We took the short hike Christmas day and the views were spectacular. Not a lot of effort for a great afternoon of hiking.

The weather was relatively warm during Dec 2015 and we were able to do some outside hiking at the trail head above O'Malley Rd. The winter views were breath taking and the hike invigorating. Don't be afraid to tour Alaska during the winter. Just take or borrow clothing for the type of weather they are having while there.

Beautiful hike but be prepared for a long hike in order to take in the sights. Also be sure to have 4 wheeled drive in the winter as the road that leads up to it is basically an ice rink.
