“A steep climb that leads to summit nirvana.”— Paul Mason
As you reach treeline, the trail gets a bit easier, the roots disappear and the views of Juneau come out of the trees. The alpine portion is steep, muddy (if wet) and has a few rock scrambles, although there's no exposure. As you reach the top, there are two rocky bumps and a large open alpine area that beckons further exploration.
There are stunning views down to the Taku River, and on clear days the Icefield is visible, including Devils Paw and the Mendenhall Towers, as well as Admiralty Island. When you are finished exploring the summit, head back down the way you came, but keep in mind that this is possibly the type of trail that's harder going down than up. Those rocks and tree roots you scrambled up must be descended. Often on all fours.
