Wow, of all the excursions we did in our cruise, this was the best and it was Free! For a Miami girl in her 50’s and hubby in 60’s that have never done any kind of hiking, never mind uphill hiking, we were a little...More
This was a great hike for our family. We went in the rain, so some spots/rocks were slippery. A few areas had rainwater raging down the mountain, which we enjoyed seeing and hearing. We did not make it to the end of the trail; we...More
One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever taken. It is a little steep at first so keep that in mind. The trail work was something. I can't imaging how much time was taken to move so many rocks and make this trail what...More
A beautifully constructed hike through an area as primitive as it was centuries ago. Lush flora, a chance encounter with fauna (deer) and the sublime peace and quiet of the rain forest. A perfect way to begin a Sitka day.

The entrance to the trail is only about 1 1/2 miles from the poet so you could probably walk to the trail or take a uber. The trail has several routes so could be a 1, 2 hr hike or longer depending on your choice of route.
Hey, I live in Sitka and totally agree this is a great trail to check out. You could take a taxi to the trailhead and setup a time to be picked up (cell service is very limited out there) or you could hook up with a local... More
Hey, I live in Sitka and totally agree this is a great trail to check out. You could take a taxi to the trailhead and setup a time to be picked up (cell service is very limited out there) or you could hook up with a local. If you found someone available on the day your going they could even hike with you and carry for you in case of bears (this is bear country, don't let that deter you tho, I hike without anything all the time, just be bear aware!) Hope this helps! I'm actually heading to this trail right now, hope you take time to come visit our little island paradise!
