  • If you're looking for a place to have a large group picnic then consider the McHugh Creek Recreation Area. There are plenty of picnic tables and parking here. The only caution is the chance of having a large moose visit. The McHugh Creek is beautiful and worth the trip, so enjoy a BBQ next the creek.
  • Never been to the top of the hike but I've been on the trails and in the parking area below. It's all well maintained. It is a very scenic area with a gorgeous view of the Inlet.
  • Well marked parking area for trail access. Great view of Turnagain Arm.
  • Amazing views. Great place to hike.
  • Nice place to spot and stretch the legs. Nice walk and beautiful views.
