Your photo labeled as looking northwest from the summit of Flattop Mountain is actually viewing to the west. Note Mount Susitna in the background.

Also, you state that the parking lot is outside the city limits. It is, in fact, within the limits of the Municipality of Anchorage, as are the entirety of the Rabbit Creek and Campbell Creek drainages and Flattop Mountain (and the ridges to the southeast leading to Flaketop Peak) itself.

You might also mention that this is probably the most popular hike in all of Alaska.

And you might want to include it with the Chugach Mountains parent group.

To turn off Upper Huffman Road, take a right on Toilsome Hill Drive. This will eventually turn into Glen Alps Road, but those traveling to the Glen Alps trailhead should be on the lookout for the sign for Toilsome Hill Drive.

Re: Corrections

I am planning to hike this mountain next week and I will adopt the page from the current maintainer. I will then address your corrections.

Some More Additions/Corrections

Peak 3658 is known as Peak Two. Peak 4111 is known as Peak Three.

You state that parking on the road near the Glen Alps Parking Lot is permitted. Signs indicate, however, that parking on the roadway is prohibited; park rangers will ticket vehicles parked there.

What do you think of the page now that it is completed. I have taken your suggestions into account.

Looks pretty accurate.

That is odd. I must of changed it by accident, because it definitely used to be a - longitude. Very odd. I am always the one notifying people to fix that exact issue! It is fixed now.

Re: Tickets

Thanks. I modified the section. What is the current day use fee in the main parking lot?
