You will meet your guide at the trail head which is conveniently located in the town of Seward. From there we will hike up to the Mount Marathon Bowl enjoying view of waterfalls, alpine meadows, forest, and expansive views of Seward and the surrounding area. Once arriving at the bowl we will take time exploring the area or just relaxing in this beautiful mountain oasis. From there we will pack up and hike back down to the trailhead. The whole excursion will take 3-4 hours depending on how quickly we hike up and how much time spent in the bowl. Come check out this awesome guided hiking experience!

Sorry this is so late. An active 7 year old with hiking experience would be fine. There were a couple of steep sections but they weren’t very long. If she’s not active it would be a grueling experience!
