Really fun. There was a lot of traffic along the trail, but everyone was really friendly. Unbelievable views from the top. A must do, if you are around anchorage.

Superb hike. Just of note: the trail map here shows the "Primrose" trail, which heads southwards to the lakes (from trail head at mile marker 17) and is not the official "Lost Lake Trail" (which leaves from a trail head off mile marker 5 and travels NORTH to the lake). Both are super. We went in and back out via Lost Lake trail and it was spectacular and memorable. Perfect fall day.

The road from Dawson City, YT to the road intersection south of TOK has many places to look at the beautiful scenery. The area is especially desolate and there are few facilities along the drive. The town of Chicken has some interesting art, a music festival, mining artifacts, and the standard tourist paraphernalia - and a real funky little bar. The road is packed clay on the Canadian side and paved and degraded paved on the American side and can be quite messy when the weather is bad - which is often. There are some small side hikes but the really spectacular scenery is a long way off with no real access from the road.

Took the kids last weekend and had a great time. Breathtaking views and gorgeous weather. Not difficult for my young boys but still a good workout. Maintained trails. A woman in the parking lot had seen a brown bear but we missed it.

Awesome hike. This beautifully maintained trail starts near downtown Sitka and climbs the hill overlooking town. The trailhead is at the end of Baranof Street. It's a strenuous climb. If you hike far enough (I think about 5 miles) there is a warming hut to escape the rain.
