We spent a couple hours on the Mt. Dewey trial and it was worth every minute of our time. We had a spectacular view of the inlet and Wrangell. The trail was maintained well, too.

This trail is a boardwalk hike up many steps, easily accessed from town. I'd call it somewhere between easy and moderate, just because of the elevation change, but we didn't find it difficult at all. The trail can be slippery when it's wet out, so...More

Mt Dewey is an easy hike and if the weather is good, there are nice views from the top. But the better hike is Rainbow Falls Trail 5 miles from town. Our Alaska Vistas Tour guide had her employee drive us to the trail head...More

We're seniors and we didn't have a problem with the boardwalk. My knees were sore, but that's usual. The walk itself was so beautiful that we stopped to take pictures along the way. The view from the top was awesome.

It's all stairs and wooden walkways. This protects the environment which is appreciated. Nice view of Wrangell and beautiful forest along the way.

The trail is a good hike. Most of the trail is on a well constructed boardwalk. When you get to the top, the view is of Wrangell and the surrounding waters. Well worth the trek.
