Bird Ridge Professional Review and Guide
"One of the ?rst trails to melt in the spring, combined with signi?cant elevation, make it a great trail to get in hiking shape at the beginning of the season. The hike up Bird Ridge, the ridge between Indian and Bird Creeks, offers a chance to see the Anchorage area’s first mountain wildflowers of the year; the ridge is steep and south-facing, so the snow melts early in spring. The sweeping views of alpine mountains, green valleys, and shimmering Turnagain Arm from the ridge are about as good as scenery gets."

This is a tough hike straight up hill. Nothing technical, but a hard climb. Despite that when you you do get to the top, its well worth the energy. I highly recomend this trail to anyone looking for a challenging, yet strenous day hike.
