The views are beautiful from this trail. You get to see Anchorage and the Bay. Also around sunset time the scenery turns magical. There are blueberry bushes on this trail (hence the name blueberry trail) though people come here and take home buckets full... so good luck finding any. You may be able to find my looking for a blueberry bush off the trail.

This is not an easy hike, but the view is great. Definitely wear sturdy shoes and take water and a light jacket.

I read that this is one of the most most popular hikes in Anchorage and it is not hard to see why. It is accessible, being close to Anchorage and having two large parking lots (and other trails). It has beautiful views even before you read the top. And it gets more challenging as you go. So you can adjust the challenge for your group by how far you go. I went early on an overcast and somewhat rainy Monday morning. There was only one other car in the parking lot and I only saw one other human on the way up. It starts easy on a broad path and narrows and steepens as you go. The last bit up to the top is pretty much a "Choose your own adventure" as the trail doesn't really exist in all the rocks. It took me just under an hour from the start to the summit with a few stops for geocaches. The view from the top is fantastic and absolutely worth all the effort. It is also by no means the end and there are more trails if you want to keep going. I found a few more geocaches, enjoyed my time on the summit taking pictures, and then headed back down.

Fantastic hike, we made it to the top and back in 3 hours with plenty of stops for pictures & taking in the scenery. The views get better the higher you go, but even if you don't go all the way to the top you'll still enjoy great views. The last part is steep and requires some hand-over-hand climbing, but it's really fun and only takes about 30 minutes. My kids (ages 11 to 16) and wife (slight fear of heights) loved this hike as much as I did.

The views from up here are breathtaking! Some trails closed off however, still very nice. Family was able to make it on top of the mountain which wasn’t easy climb given the rain, but the children loved the challenge! We still have one more week of exploring before heading back to Las Vegas. We looking forward to the glaciers and tunnels.
