Pinnacled and precipitous, O’Malley Peak towers above South Anchorage in dramatic relief. Wild and windy, exposed yet safe, and on the edge of town, the mountain should by all rights be crowded with hikers. But it remains a quiet place. Climb O’Malley in an afternoon or combine it with a longer trip to Williwaw Lakes. For a shorter outing, visit Little O’Malley, perched at the end of O’Malley Peak’s long western ridge. Much less traveled than neighboring Flattop Peak, Little O’Malley is a great climb for kids and less experienced hikers. The trail is muddy and eroded early on—try to stay on the main path to minimize further damage. It ascends a shallow gully and reaches a saddle after a short but strenuous climb. Beyond this saddle lies The Ballpark, a high, wide, and unusually flat cirque. To reach Little O’Malley Peak, turn left at the saddle and follow the ridge for /4 mile. Here you’ll find solitude and fine views of Anchorage.
