AK Flattop Mountain Trail
Marker Description: The trail starts with a wooden staircase and switchbacks through hemlock until reaching the alpine tundra at Blueberry Hill. The last few hundred feet are steep and rocky. The views are great from the top of the 3550 ft peak. On a clear day Mt. McKinley and Mt. Redoubt can easily be seen. Continuing along the ridge southeast, you will come to the next two peaks, elevations 3658 ft. and 4111 ft.

This trail is rated easy-moderate due to the elevation gain in the short distance and bad trail conditions near the top. Stay between the markers that are set near the summit.

Directions: Drive south on the New Seward Highway and take the O'Malley road exit and head east. Drive about 4 miles and take a right onto Hillside drive. Drive approximately 1 mile and turn left onto Upper Huffman Road, and drive .7 miles to a three way intersection, turn right onto Toilsome Hill Drive. Go about 2 miles to the Glen Alps parking area, the trailhead is on the left.

Trail Head: The Flattop Trail is found by climbing the stairs on the southeast side of the parking area. Marker placed in parking area.

Great hike, pretty challenging at the top but well worth the amazing views of Anchorage.
