Best thing to do in alaska if you like to hike. I enjoyed it till it started to snow but then just ran down the hill to avode getting trapped. great views.
The Flattop Trail Hike was a real lesson in the vastness of Alaska. The breathtaking views and the snow capped mountains were an incredible sight. I was just overcome with the beauty and still the rugged still wild frontier of this area.
It a beautiful well marked train with great view of the city ocean and mountains. It was hard for our little guy 3.5 years to do it but for us was a fairly easy climb despite the weather. Highly recommend.
The hike includes elevation. I took my 73 year old mother and it was not arduous. Beautiful views and colors! Worth the effort. The parking lot fills up so go early.
This is advertised by the people who run the shuttle as an easy hike, but it isn't. lots of elevation, and the trail is broken away at top and becomes rock scramble. However, the views on way up are great. On clear day can see Denali very well.
Enjoyed the drive out to Flattop and watched the hang-gliders. We did not do the trail but took the paved path to one of the lookouts which had a large compass pointing out the surrounding points of interest.
