Really nice trails and some great views of some local creeks. During salmon season it is a high bear trafficked area, so be prepared if you head here during peak salmon season.

The second half is a little treacherous, but worth it.

My favorite hike in the anchorage area. I took the Northwest Ridge up to the summit. It is a fairly strenuous hike due to the rapid elevation gain and scrambles over scree and jagged false peaks. There were a lot of people on the trail, most of which dropped out before making the NW Ridge. As far as I could tell, I was one of only six to summit that day. The views are spectacular and easily justify the effort. O'Malley gives you a stunning view of 1) the Cook Inlet and valley below, and 2) the endless peaks that make up the Chugach Range.

Lots of moose year round. Beautiful views over the bluffs and at the end of the airport. Wooded and open, mostly gentile hills to flat. 6yr old did 8 miles on bikes.
