I honestly wasn't expecting such an awesome view after only a 2.5 mile hike. It was difficult but so worth it! Kind of cold at the top due to wind so bring a jacket.

This trail is near the park entrance but it doesn't take long for you to be in the wilderness. It's a steep trail but it's well worth the views at the top.

This a great return hike - we, a family of 4 with teen kids did it in 4 hours. Steep going up and quick coming down. But the view is simply stunning and completely worth it.

This trail is over two miles with an increase in elevation of 1700 feet along the way. It's a bit strenuous, but totally do-able if you are in reasonably good condition. The scenery along the way is incredible and the view from the top is...More

Nice views of Denali Park and surrounding areas. Windy and cooler at top. You can continue on an unmaintained trail to higher point if desired. We saw a large female moose just off the trail on the way down.
