About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Fuller Lakes Trail provides access to the Mystery Creek Unit of the Kenai Wilderness. The trail climbs rapidly in elevation to Lower Fuller Lake. There is little elevation gain between Lower and Upper Fuller Lakes. Beyond the lower lake are scattered stands of trees; much of the area is covered with dwarf willow and birch. Crosscountry travel is relatively easy in the Upper Fuller Lake area, and a trip to one of the ridges on nearby mountains can give spectacular views. The entire trail is in good condition, but it does pass through several areas that may be wet or muddy, especially between Lower and Upper Fuller Lakes. Wear sturdy hiking shoes. There are excellent views of
the Kenai Range along the trail to the lower lake. Superb views can be obtained by climbing the mountains surrounding the upper lake.

Trail highlights

Lake, Mud Puddles, Shaded Hike, Viewpoint, and Wildlife Viewing

Berry-picking along the trail can be very good in late summer, especially
near Upper Fuller Lake. Beavers and their lodges can be seen at Lower Fuller Lake. Look for Dall sheep on alpine slopes and ptarmigan, grouse, hawks, eagles, and other birds along the trail.
