“Nice Short Hike Through a Pretty PArk”

Sitka National Historic Park/Totem Park
Ranked #2 of 52 things to do in Sitka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Nice visitor center with movie and knowlegable and friendly attendant. But best part was nice 30 t0 45 minute hike through woods with several totem poles along the way. Just missed salmon running in the pretty stream. Right outside of town and walking distance. Definitely worthhe time.

Excellent indoor display and short movie about the area's history. Then you take an easy 1 mile loop walk along the coast to see various totem poles. You will also see eagles, ravens, rain forest vegetation and the coastal shoreline

I was pleasantly surprised by how much information was contained in the small nature center, as well as along the trails. Wildlife was plentiful; indeed a sign at the nature center had a "bear warning" on the door, alerting visitors of possible bear on the trail. This notice certainly had the younger kids (as well as adventurous adults) in the group eager to walk the trail.

While we visited on the weekend, I was intrigued by the "working studios" at the center that apparently allows visitors to observe how the Native Americans created their artifacts and art work.

Take the ranger-led tours! A great place to visit and a great place for early morning jogging--but be ready for bears!
