We hiked the Haystack trail.. very well maintained and a great hike with awesome views. The gravel road gets more and more rutted the further you go.. so you have to go slow but it was fine.

The views are just amazing and the nature is just amazing. You can stay there for hours upon hours and never want to leave. Cordova is an amazing place to visit for hiking and stunning beauty.
