A scenic, safe, affordable, independent outdoor afternoon excursion.  We drive you 15-miles (30 minutes) from downtown Anchorage (sea level) to the Glen Alps trailhead (elevation 2,200') in Chugach State Park.  Van remains parked for 2.5 hours while you HIKE on your own.  On average, it takes one hour to HIKE from the parking lot to the summit.  This allows most people 30 minutes to walk around the mountain's flat top and photograph the great views.  It takes about 45 minutes to descend.  No guide is needed on this popular, easy to follow trail.  In a nutshell, this is a 30-mile low-key circuit tour of Anchorage and an unguided mountain HIKE above it for only $23.*
 

Because there is no guide you can hike as far and as fast or as slow and as little as you like.  A tired hiker can turn around wherever and whenever they want.  Fit hikers can get to the top in as little as 35 minutes so they sometimes run up to the second or even the third peak above Flattop.  Up there you can run along a ridge line and unlike on the Flattop trail, up there you will likely be completely alone.  Hikers must begin their descent by 3 pm so that they are back in the parking lot at or before 4 pm.  Click here for the handout "How to Hike the Flattop Mountain Trail."  

Regardless of your pace the great views provide a reward for every footstep. Even on cloudy or rainy days and even for people who only hike a short way up, it is still a great value.  Unlike with commission-driven comparable city tours, you get time and exercise in the mountains and see Anchorage at less than half the price.  Compared to hiking in a group supervised by a guide, we charge 74% less without any advance (often non-refundable) payment.  See More, pay less with us.
