Lazy MountainWED4/3/20199:00 AM Trail description:
Lazy Mountain climb is 3000 feet in less than two miles. The first half moves through cottonwoods, aspen, spruce, birch, and tall fireweed. At about 1,500 feet in elevation the trail crosses into alpine tundra and offers sweeping views of the Knik and Matanuska Rivers. A picnic table awaits here at the halfway mark. Scrappy mountain runners train on Lazy slopes. Lazy Mountain has become a hiking highway recently. In icy winter, hikers wear microspikes. Summiting Lazy at 3,720 feet gives magnificent views of the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains.

The longer, less steep, Lazy Moose Trail, zigzags up the hill for three miles. Access this gentler trail at the beginning to the right. Lazy Moose reconnects with Lazy Mountain Trail above the first picnic table. Lazy Moose Trail is a gentle ascent.

For a shorter hike the picnic table area will be an option for some.
Bring all the hiking gear you feel will be needed for the weather, like Kahtoolas, rain gear, light weight jacket, water and snacks. In other words.......... be prepared for the weather.

Meet at Fred Meyer Muldoon, by garden entrance at 9:00 am to coordinate carpooling.

Hope to see you all there
