“An easy-to-follow, well-used trail up to the top of the Dome.”— Abe H
Following the fence east, the trail will quickly bring you down to the North Fork Campbell Creek. A bridge allows for easy crossing of the creek, and the trail continues upwards through the woods. The trail is pretty mellow through the woods, but as the foliage breaks up, the trail steepens, and you climb the west ridge into the alpine to an apparent high point.
Follow the trail southeast to another bump, and you've reached the top of the Dome. From the top of the Dome, you get a good vantage point of the Anchorage bowl.
