Flattop Mountain Trail

Flattop Mountain at Glen Alps is the most popular day hike in Anchorage. It’s an easy 1.5 mile hike to the almost flat summit, which was created by glaciation. Great views of Anchorage, the Cook Inlet, Turnagain Arm, and the Chugach Mountains. From the Seward highway take O’Malley east, right on Hillside Dr, left on Upper Huffman and left on Toilsome Hill and follow the signs to Glen Alps. There is a $5 parking fee. If you don’t want to drive take the Flattop Mountain Shuttle, available to pick up and return hikers downtown. 907-279-3334
