Experienced hikers will love this tour that takes you on a rigorous hike through the beautiful terrain of Southeast Alaska.
Your guide will meet you at the pier where you will be offered rain gear, hiking sticks, small backpacks, bottles of water and sign a waiver. Once everyone is ready, you will board your van and head off on a 30-minute ride outside of town to a remote logging road.
Leaving your van behind, you will set-off on a trek that is a mix of boardwalk and natural trail that climbs approximately 2,000 feet in 2 miles. As your trail leads you through the Alaskan rainforest, you will travel along muskegs en route to a series of fresh mountain ponds. Enjoy some magnificent panoramic views of the islands of Southeast Alaska from this high elevation and revel in the majesty of this pristine wilderness trail.
After approximately 3 1/2 hours of hiking, you will find yourself back at the start of the trail where your van is waiting to transfer you back to town.
