Flattop Mountain Trail can be accessed at the Glen Alps trailhead. The popular 1.5-mile trail is well maintained with an elevation gain of 1280 feet with a moderately difficult climb to the peak. Since it is the most accessible mountain to Anchorage, Flattop is a very popular location for hiking, climbing, berry picking, paragliding, and backcountry skiing. Also a great viewing location for sunsets and the northern lights during the summer and winter solstices.
