“A Significant Historical Location Plus a View!”

Baranof Castle State Historical Site
Ranked #12 of 52 things to do in Sitka
Attraction details

It is worth the climb up the stairs to read the kiosks that tell how important this piece of property was over the ages. It is also one of the best places in town to get a bird's eye view of the town and harbor.

Love the view from up here. Work the little hike up the back or stairs up the front. Don't miss it. The history of Sitka is displayed up here, if you can go over ALaska Days do it

Was surprised that there were no buildings at the top of the hill. However,, there is a great view of the harbor. Plaques along the trail list some of the history.

It's a nice walk up the hill, past a few historic signs, but there's nothing at the top - besides some beautiful views. We enjoyed the walk and the views but were a bit surprised there wasn't "more."
