Flattop Mountain Trail
In Los Angeles, you cruise the Sunset Strip; in Paris, you stroll the Champs-Élysées; and in Anchorage, you climb Flattop Mountain. This is the first mountain every Anchorage youth scales on the way to higher things. The very popular 3-mile round-trip hike to the 3550ft peak is easy to follow, though you’ll be scrambling at the summit. Allow three to five hours.
