  • Nice respite from the Seward Hwy. Easy hikes for even those non-hikers. AMAZING AK views. Well maintained parking area and rest area.
  • Gorgeous place to hike, stroll, fish, sunbath-weather permitting & a nice pit stop just south of Anchorage on the drive up :-) . Please keep it beautiful, don't litter or be an idiotic wildfire starter :-(
  • Nice, breezy stop right along Seward highway. Good views of bay and great spot to stop for a snack. Good walking trails branching off from main parking lot.
  • Picture Perfect views along with great trail heads and perfect place to picnic. Be sure to check out the windless balcony over the river, it is pretty sweet especially in the colder months.
  • Beautiful views, I can't wait to go back
