Nice quick hike up the hill above Wrangell with a good view of the bay. Very nice to have the boardwalk and stairs to keep it from being muddy and eroded.

We had a very pleasant hike/walk up Mount Dewey. The day was sunny and dry. The trail is easy to walk as it's basically boardwalk, platforms and stairs. It probably took less than 30 minutes to get to the top. We also walked up to...More

We're seniors and we didn't have a problem with the boardwalk. My knees were sore, but that's usual. The walk itself was so beautiful that we stopped to take pictures along the way. The view from the top was awesome.

It's all stairs and wooden walkways. This protects the environment which is appreciated. Nice view of Wrangell and beautiful forest along the way.

The trail is a good hike. Most of the trail is on a well constructed boardwalk. When you get to the top, the view is of Wrangell and the surrounding waters. Well worth the trek.

This 1/4 mile trail is easily identified. One there you will be walking up on a board walk the entire way. It is an easy walk, but beautiful and very worthwhile. John Muir was here and walked up this mountain.

Very steep and also slippery. It was a workout for my 26 year old son and myself--and we're used to mountain hikes in Colorado. However, the view was worth the effort.

well laid out, nice platforms to walk on, did not see any wildlife other than a grouse, but the walk was invigorating and fun
