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

The trailhead is in the upper parking area of the Lowell Point Recreation Site on Pinnacle View Road. It is marked Tonsina Trail and is also the Caine’s Head Trail. We found it easily passable after several days of rain. Really beautiful forest with wildflowers....More

The hike from the trailhead begins as a very nice walk through the forest, mostly on an uphill grade. Then you'll walk downhill (not as hard on the way back as anticipated) to the creek running through a beach, with several waterfalls. Great Hike, with...More

This trail starts on gravel and then becomes super rocky. It’s nice as it’s by the ocean; however, as you need to keep looking down to watch your step, you have to fully stop to look at the ocean. A sea otter ran past us...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

Yes, there is no person sitting at a gatehouse, monitoring entrance. I considered it worth the price to see the salmon run and hike along the shore of Resurrection Bay.
