Near Point is a moderate 4 mile (one way) hike with 1500 ft of elevation gain to get in views of the city of Anchorage and the Cook Inlet. I’ve only done this hike in the winter. I was informed by friends that it is a safe winter hike free from avalanche danger. You can elect to follow the ridge line further back and that can take you to many more peaks, and views. The hike can be accessed from the Prospect Heights trailhead which has a $5 parking fee for the day.
