We only went a short way up the mountain but was enjoyed the view from the viewing platform near the Parking Lot. $5 to park for the day. Bathrooms available. Not too crowded. Easy drive.

Nice hike even in the rain, the first two thirds was mild but the last was hands and feet kind of climb but was worth it.

This was a difficult hike that was especially strenuous at the end, but the views were completely worth it. It's a little difficult to track where you are because of the lack of signage. The first hill you reach is the Blueberry Knoll, and you...More

Wow this was a great start to our alaskan adventure. The climb to the summit is tough and the way down can be dangerous. Definitely not for children. You should be at least somewhat fit to reach the summit. Very windy at the top. You...More

Great hike. It is somewhat steep at times, the top is made of large rocks with no trail, you just need to make your way up the rocks as best you can. Not great for dogs or smaller children. There are a few places to...More

My children are all 10 & under and although we enjoyed the spectacular views, they weren't keen on hiking/walking. It was breezy when we went so that may have been part of it.

This is an extreme hike with trails, snow, rocks, boulders etc. But amazing if you are up to it. You will see wildlife so be careful...be smart. The view at the top is spectacular! An all day event.

You can hike the first part of it, but I don't believe it would be safe to go to the top with any sort of child or baby backpack. The top is too steep and footing is unstable. Safety first! :-)
