We wanted to do a "non-excustion" on our Alaska cruise and get out in nature a bit. Researched moderate hikes on our ports of call that fit the time frames of our stop and Lower Dewey fit the bill. Other posts said 1.5-2 hours, we...More

Hiked on a Saturday morning up and around Lower Dewey Lake and then out to Icey Lake and Upper Reid Falls. Over 7 miles along a moderate strenuous trail.

The hike is nice and in a quiet location. The trail head is easily accessed from the town. The beginning of the trail is a steep climb and with some pipes and trash beside the trail

We started this trail and immediately began going straight up. Then we went straight up some more, and some more, and some more. This is NOT an easy trail, it is a hard incline over rocks with sandy footing. Once you've reached flat land, you're...More

This short hike takes you to a beautiful mountain lake. Easy hike for most anyone. Bring along water and maybe a picnic lunch!

Hi This trail is not the normal trail you will come across. It is a hilly and rocky start of the trail and a bit steeper. I would consider it a medium to hard trail at the part that goes up the mountain adjacent to the... More
