The Matanuska Peak Trail is a well marked and maintained trail starting on Smith Rd. It is about a 4.5 mile hike that can be attacked from two converging paths one that skirts Lazy Mountain the other following MacRoberts Creek. The trail is quite strenous excepting a rolling section for about a mile before the extremely steep scramble to the summit.
