This trail is well maintained and well travelled. On weekdays you can see more wildlife, including possibly bear and moose.
Great views from the top!

Angel Rock was a great place. The views are amazing. Wonderful place to workout and enjoy the outdoors.

The Angel Rocks Trail took us city folk about 3-3.5 hours to complete. I am not in shape and took multiple "photo op" breaks. It was a nice hike up and back. We went in June and the mosquitoes were a problem in some areas. The trails were well used by others the day we were out, but not crowded. Some very pretty views and worth doing.

Angel Rocks is close to town, but gives you a real sense of the Alaskan wilderness. The loop trail takes 2 - 4 hours, based on your family's pace/energy level. Beautiful scenery… And, don't forget to hit the rock pool at Chena Hot Springs while you're our there! It will soothe those well-used leg muscles, and ensure your kids will fall asleep fast and hard that night! ;-)

This is the shortest trail in the Chena River Recreation Area, and takes approximately 3 hours to complete. The trail is well marked, which was very important to us because we are not from the area, and there were very few people doing the trail (we only saw 4 other hikers). I have to admit that I am a terrible hiker, and had a rough time in the downhill return, so I would not recommend this for inexperienced hikers, or to city folk like me who lose their footing on anything that isn't concrete. the elevation of the trail is 900 feet. We were worried because the trail had previously been closed due to bear sightings, but the only animals we saw were a woodpecker and squirrel tracks on the snow.
