  • Nice stop. Hoping to see wildlife but it was nothing but wind. Not much else to see or do. Take pics and leave!  more »
  • The park is great. Saw a black bear and some moose. Dall's sheep too. It's a great and peaceful place to spend some time.  more »

  • Didn't have much of a chance to explore. Trying to find something and got lost. But it's nice driving in the quiet back roads and just enjoying the views. Roads were mostly plowed with minimal ice. Which is wonderful considering the recent weather.
  • I believe I was in the upper west side of the park. I traveled around Alaska in February so many of the noticeable spots were snow covered and this day wan't planned so I just got in the vehicle and drove. Google maps tracked me and I'm using that as a photo guide. I'll post some pictures and they should be close according to the time and day. Anyway - the views were amazing as were most of what I saw during this trip. The last two days were dedicated to Anchorage and the surrounding area.
  • It's a very big state park, filled with so much to do. I like flattop the best but I've only gone on 7 trails. Amazing place!
  • Amazing views and great hiking trails. A great way to keep in shape and see the beautiful Alaska. This is what it is all about! Fresh Air, Fresh Breath and Fresh Sites!
  • We had a fun family hike. A short loop at little man's pace, he was 2.5 years. There were observation decks to look out over some water, try to see some fish. Gorgeous mountain views, puddles to splash in, and a tree we could stand in. We all had fun.
