"The McHugh Lake Trail traverses in a northeasterly direction along the McHugh Creek Valley and parallel with McHugh Creek, finally ending at two pristine alpine lakes—Rabbit and McHugh. This excellent full-day hike guarantees outstanding scenic views of Turnagain Arm and Cook Inlet, mountain peaks, glacially carved valleys, mature forests, wildflowers, and Alaskan wildlife.
This is a very popular stopping place with a large paved parking area, picnic facilities, restrooms, and a scenic overlook. In addition to hiking the trails, many people stop here to view Turnagain Arm, bore tides, beluga whales, and a large picturesque waterfall near the road. The facility also has a seasonal park host on site."
