Dewey Lake- Skagway

We drove past this on our scooter ride (we rented scooters from Skagway Scooters) It was completely breath taking

Walk through the trees - good lookout over Skagway. Several rest spots along the lake. Very pretty. Lots of birds.

The reward at the top of the trail is worth every step on the way up! Such a beautiful lake and area! The trail is steep, but if your fit you can do it!

A great hike, especially if you are in shape, as it goes up about 500 feet. There has been a big grizzly bear sighted (and filmed) up there in July, 2015. Usually lots of other people around, though. Very peaceful place.

We are in out early 50s and only slightly above average as far as fitness is concerned. We struck out on this trail and made it to 2600 feet. When we did not achieve our goal but the hike was wonderful. After the lower lake, Waterfalls and fast flowing creeks adorn the landscape and then absolute stunning views of the... More

Tough hike for me, a 45 year old, but had two teenagers rushing me. Saw older folks on the trail taking it slow. Round trip took us 4 hours, legs hurt for 3 days. There is a nice cabin on top that you have to reserve in advance at the rec center. Go up in the afternoon and come back... More

My husband and I cruised to Alaska at the beginning of June. Our other stops in ports were packed with excursions, so for Skagway we decided to do a bit of exploring on our own. We picked up a trail map and began on our way. The entrance is easy to find and the trail was well marked the entire... More

if you're used to walk long trails you can do it. I did it after another 10 miles of trail but at a certain point I climbed 1 minute with 2 minutes stop. So not for ladies on shoes with heels....

This is a nice, steep hike, but the scenery was fabulous. Take it slow and easy and you'll get to the top. I took many pictures of the unique mushrooms along the path. I usually like flowers, but there weren't many of those in Sept, but the mushrooms were colorful and unique. The lake was a destination, but the journey... More

Being from Florida (highest point 345ft), this hike was pretty strenuous- as it was listed as strenuous, but it was worth every drop of sweat. My husband and I love to just throw a backpack on and go! The elevation to the top is 3100ft and it's a steep 2 mile hike. We had several stops on the way up... More
