This trail is a lovely way to spend the afternoon, strolling through Alaskan wilderness. Visitors can spot wildlife, birds, and flowers in bloom along the way. Some birds spotted from the trail include, bald eagles, crossbills, winter wrens, and a boreal owl.

....we sighted a mama grizzly and her two cubs 100 yards up the trail, so we turned around and went back the way we came!

We stayed at the Gustavus Inn and they had bikes for us to use. We took this ride with kids- very easy ride and fun to enjoy the outdoors from our Inn.

Beautiful trail to see plants and trees. In June, the wild flowers were blooming and the fields and trail were spectacular. It is quiet and tranquil.

Had the trail to myself and enjoyed the serenity. Used bear bells though. Pretty flowers, chocolate lily and lupine.

This is an easy stroll which is perfect for an hour's walk or so near the airport. It traverses a diversity of landscapes and presents a wide array of native flora.

Unfortunately we didn't see any wildlife, but the trail is beautiful and well-maintained. Worth the trek around the loop.

This was a (mostly) pleasant trail through various types of foliage, from meadows to shady forests. As the name implies, there are often edible berries growing along the trail. The berries are tasty, but make sure you know which ones to pick (most are OK but there are a few types that are poisonous.) About midway through the trail, the... More

Wonderful, easy family hike! Best in early summer for flowers and a bit later for berries. Vegetation is interesting...just be on a constant lookout for wildlife!
