At the top you have your choices of watching a film about the Tlingit Natives, eating at the restaurant and guided or independent hiking. There are also gift shops with an emphasis on native crafts. Make sure to stop at the nature center to learn about the environment and wildlife on the mountain.
We only saw a hoary marmot during our hike but then- we'd never seen one before so add it to the fun.
For the serious hiker you can hike one way and take the tram the other but this is definately not for the day tripper. Even the mild trails are relatively challenging as they are muddy and require climbing on slippery steps at times.
We really enjoyed the many wildflowers which are so abundant in Alaska.
What a view! Plan to spend the day or at least several hours.
