Mountain Lake and Forest Hike

Add to Itinerary

We'll begin our day with a short scenic 10-minute drive to meet this trailhead. This small-group tour will embark on a 4-mile roundtrip hike into the wilderness of Southeast Alaska. This gravel trail perched in the mountainside for the first mile will provide plenty of views of a forested lake down below. There will be plenty of scenery for you to enjoy and even capture that perfect moment with your camera. The second mile is a more natural trail mixed with gravel, large rocks and tree roots as you ascend through an old-growth rainforest filled with Sitka Spruce, Western Red Cedar, and Western Hemlock.

At 1,100 feet of elevation, you arrive at the bottom of an avalanche chute, our destination on this tour. Based on the ability of the group, another 1.4 miles may be added to arrive at the end of the permitted trail at an alpine stone bench overlooking the lake and Tongass Narrows with an elevation of 1, 667 feet.
