Great hike. Beautiful weather. Trail is wide and easy on one side, with the opposite side more difficult being on the "upside" of the mountain. Great views of surrounding peaks above the tree line.
Great to hike at elevation when usually at sea level at or around swamps In Florida!!

Great hike! Got pretty hard if you go to the very top. Bring gloves and hiking boots. Be prepared to climb rocks.

This is a long drive with beautiful scenery, lots of blueberries, and typical remote Alaskan residences. There are some beautiful hikes. It's not paved but generally ok for 2-wheel drive vehicles if not too wet.

Steep but short to baldy. Highly recommend going up the front and down the back. I hate going back down the from trail. Also on the way out the back loop is a great. Little pond with an awesome spring. No filter needed on this pipe. Great out back over blacktail to either round top or vista

Going up the hills and climbing boulders was rough but well worth it to see the beautiful colored lake.

This hike was pretty. Unfortunately heavy fog covered the majority of the mountain tops. I would recommend it.
