    Smile Trail Availability

    Anyone know of any good trails that are available now. My family and I are dying to get out tomorrow and do some hiking. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Something relatively close to Anchorage would be fantastic.

    Bird Ridge, down the Seward Highway, is often a good early season hike. It has a southern exposure and the snow melts early. If the weather is clear, you'll enjoy the view, even from part way up.

    Default Bird Ridge

    I was just on Bird Ridge Saturday morning and its pretty snow free till you get to the last bit before the first peak. If you didn't want to hike on the snow there is a great spot to turn around that is nice and flat and a good lunch area.

    Snow is going fast and some one I talked to on the way said that an amazing amount of snow has melted in the last 5 days.
