“A great through-trail on a classic Kenai Peninsula trail.”— Owen Means
By mid or late June, the trail is usually overgrown and becomes a little less fun. Downed trees across the trail and numerous shallow water crossings are often present in early or mid June.
The trail is mostly smooth, but there are plenty of shorter sections where rocks and roots are abundant. Unlike Resurrection Pass, Devil's Pass, or Lost Lake, running above treeline is limited to a mile or two at the pass. Two lakes at the pass provide an opportunity to cool off and have lunch.
