Switchbacks galore but a great trail nonetheless. The views are outstanding and you have a great chance to see wildlife. We did this trail at the beginning of October and the snow was pretty deep. Great thing to do if you're at Denali in an off season.

A super short hike but a little strenuous. The views are outstanding! Almost missed this one and decided to come back for it, totally worth it. Check out the Buckner building there too. Very interesting be careful inside.

Breath taking views and a great chance to see sheep and bears. We saw a mother black bear and three cubs. There were also dall sheep on the cliff sides. We did not do the full hike unfortunately due to a wardrobe malfunction...the soles falling off my asolo boots, but the few miles we got in to the trail were great.

I love the variety of trails that are all accessible in one site. You can adjust the length of your trek depending on your mood and how much time you have to hike.

My son and I hiked this trail back in late August 2013. It was an amazing experience. Being a history geek, I found myself in awe as we traveled the route of the Stampeders of 1897-99. Because it was our first time and we wanted to absorb every part of the trail we hiked it in a very leisurely 5 days. We did a lot of standing around though, particularly on the last 3 days. I think 4 days is about right for someone with the same mind set as me, though It can easily be done in 3. Apart from the history, the trail offers jaw dropping scenery, particularly when you get over the pass. There is a string of pristine alpine lakes, rivers, glaciers, and incredible greenery impossible to describe. I hope I get an opportunity to hike it again someday.
