Add To Plan

Hike an extraordinarily scenic forest trail near Haines that offers wonderful views of the rugged mountains and pristine Lynn Canal.

After departing from the pier, you will drive through the National Historic Landmark of Fort William Seward and then head south along beautiful crescent-shaped Portage Cove. Along the way, a guide will regale you with stories about the history of Haines, its role in the gold rush, and the influence of the native Tlingits, who first settled here.

Before long, you will arrive at a trailhead that leads to some of the most spectacular scenery around Haines. The views of Lynn Canal, the longest and deepest fjord in North America, are breathtaking. A natural inlet, not a manmade canal, the waterway served as the main route to the Yukon, where gold was discovered in 1896.

As you make your way down the trail, be on the look-out for wildlife which customarily abounds in this area. You may catch sight of soaring eagles, playful seals, huge moose and even humpback whales breaching the surface of Lynn Canal. In time, you will stop for a snack of smoked salmon at a small pebble beach where the views from sea level offer an entirely different perspective of the staggeringly beautiful scenery.

Feel free to ask your naturalist guide about the flora and fauna surrounding Haines. At certain times of the year, Haines attracts more bald eagles than anywhere else on earth. Following your beach break, you will hike back to the trailhead and return to the pier.

Layered clothing; sun cap and sunglasses are recommended. Sturdy, flat, closed-toe shoes are mandatory. Participants should be prepared for the possibility of rain.
