McHugh Peak Trail

The last trail marker is not labeled correctly, if you want to go to the peak and see some nice panoramic views of the ocean take the left trail! That's about a 2 mile hike I would say moderate, there are done strap parts.

Hiked this three weeks ago. Little snowy and muddy at the top, by the second bench, but gorgeous views and sighting of Dall sheep.

Very easy and nice hike to warm up for the day. The rushing river is a nice touch and it was fun crawling over all the rocks near the glacier. This would be a great for those who are not avid hikers but want a taste of the Alaskan heaven or for anyone looking for a no stress, short and to the point day hike.

Lazy Mountain and Matanuska Peak Trail

Great hike even with the rain. Took Lazy mountain trail up and lazy moose trail down. Very muddy and slippery throughout the climb. Be mindfull of proper attire. I did alright in crocs... but wouldn't recommend relaxed clothing till everything is dried up. Not too cold up top so overall wonderful experience. Straining climb worth the view.

A very pretty hike done on a very pretty day. Easier coming out, as it in mainly downhill. I overnighted at the lake and watched a gorgeous sunrise. With a 40 lb pack and my dog, it took us 2 hours to hike in and 1.5 hours to hike out.
