Description

From the upper arctic valley parking area the trail climbs steeply to a service road. Follow the road up and past a decommissioned mile missile control site. The trail becomes singletrack and departs the road to the right. The trail is not clearly visible in all places, but it's easy to see the trail to the summit, so just head in the general direction. Enjoy beautiful views of Anchorage, S. Fork Eagle River (hiland) and symphony and eagle lakes. You can descend the way you came up, continue through the saddle to rendezvous peak, or follow the rendezvous peak trail down as we did. Our total mileage was four even.
