We really enjoyed the walk amount the totems. The park has done a great job at preserving some of the original totems inside the visitor center. The carvings are beautiful. I loved seeing this important piece of Sitkas history.

To get to the park, you just take a leisurely stroll along a paved walkway. It is not a long or difficult walk. It is a very nice walk with things to see along the way. You will enjoy it, even in the rain.🙂
