Experience this 4.5-mile out-and-back trail on the hillside in Anchorage. Locals and visitors consider it a moderately challenging route that takes an average of 3 hours to complete. A favorite hiking trail broken up with occasional boardwalks. The trail has been improved with new switchbacks at Little O’Malley. Starting from the Glen Alps Trailhead, the route eases upwards, briefly crosses Powerline Pass, then comes to a bridge over South Fork Campbell Creek. During summer months wildflowers grow everywhere creating a picturesque sight and a great photo opportunity.
Dogs: Welcome, on a leash.

As with all trails in Alaska, hikers should be prepared, dress in layers, and bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, a map of the area, bear spray, and a well-charged cell phone.
