The salmon were spawning in the creek. Ravens were talking and talking in the trees. Eagles were soaring right above us. Seagulls and kittiwakes were entertaining. For a little while, the rain fell, but did not dampen our spirits at all as the majesty and...More
Easy hike through the coastal rainforest up and over a moderate hill on a well maintained trail. Roughly 2 miles round trip. Tonsina creek empties into Resurrection Bay where you will see salmon, eagles and possibly bears. This is the beginning portion of a much...More
Fun and easy hike! For some reason we were not able to find the upper parking lot so we parked at the lower parking lot which is only 0.3 miles from upper parking lot.
This hike is easy. Be careful not to enter any private...More
This is a 1.5 or 1.7 mile (depending upon which reference you read) trail to Tousina Creek and Point. However it felt a bit longer than 3 miles round trip just due to the ups and downs of the trail. Near the creek there are...More

Everytime we take this hike we remember why we keep comming back. It can be very messy and slippery if it has rained a bunch, but worth it. It's a maintained gravel road for the first mile or so and not much sustained uphill hiking....More
A word of advice, Google Maps points you to a private driveway for the start of the trail and that is incorrect! Once we finally found our way (the start is at a campsite with parking, a restroom and a payment station), the trail was...More
I stumbled on this trail in summer of 2017 after an all-day fjord tour. This easy hike ended up being my favorite thing of my whole week in Alaska. I did many activities and hikes (including Harding Ice Field) that were amazing, but something about...More
