Lots of nature and a good hike. We did not make it all the way to the creek so can't review on that but what we did see was beautiful. There is also a camp host(?) that parks in the lot you leave your car in so we felt a little safer.

This spot is located closer to Anchorage than it is to Girdwood.  It can be incredibly windy here (downright dangerous during strong storms).  Bears also roam the area in summer (watch for warning signs).  Nice picnic area overlooking Turnagain Arm.  Also the starting point for a great trail into the Chugach State Park.  Small waterfall.

Nice spot, little crowded on weekends and summer. Trail can be muddy & skeeters can be thick. Watch out for bears. Have spooked many on the upper reaches of this trail as it passes from treeline to alpine tundra. Consider going the opposite direction from Rabbit Lake.
