We hiked up to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. We were able to see Mt. Redout, Mt. Susitna and Denali. Worth the drive.

We didn't get to the top but there is a small park at the bottom which has an amazing view over the city. Just loved the whole trip to Anchorage.

This is a great, challening but quick day hike close to Anchorage that is great for cardio. I wouldn't go after work, on weekends, or any time it is exceptionally nice, however, as the parking lot fills up quick and who wants to hike in mother nature with hoardes of other people? That, and they inforce parking more at these times than when its a slow day.

It's a must for the travellers in Anchorage. There is a shuttle from Downtown Bike rental shop for 22 bucks. The trail is easy but the way to the 2nd summit is a little dangerous. A great opportunity for adventurers.

It was fun to watch the various levels of hiker struggle.. including one wearing flip flops. the climb is short but for the non hiker, it can be work. Nothing awful, but not a stroll either.

The views are good but not great...its a nice way to start your trip. You can stop short of the last climb and you'll have an equally good view.

If you don't have a car, Downtown Bicycle will shuttle you there and back for 22.00-- not cheap but it includes a bit of a 'guided tour' by the friendly owner
