This hike will take you through a mature costal forest. The trail is relative easy with no real elevation gain that is a grunt. At the end of the trail you come out onto a pebble stone beach where we often enjoy a picnic lunch...More

I kept expecting Imperial Speeder Bikes to wiz by and even though that never happened, the sites were still quite spectacular. This well-groomed and lush nature trail is not to be missed if you are at all a fan of the great outdoors. The trail...More

I love this trail! Every time we go to Haines - we run this trail. Dog friendly - lots of variety. The first part is nested in the forest - then you spill out onto the ocean side ramble. It is awesome. The point is...More

Beautiful walk through the coastal rain forest and out onto a beach with spectacular view across the fjord and of the mountains beyond. An easy hike, but with really beautiful scenery. A must do when in Haines.

Great short hike through the forest, with a newly 'improved' trail. Definitely fairy territory in those depths as you pass downed trees covered with moss. The trail leads you to the beach, which a local friend deemed 'crowded' because there were 5 other people there...More

This trail, as opposed to some of the other beautiful trails in Haines is pretty well maintained and generally flat. If you are looking for a trail to walk leisurely and come out at points of interest, view a passing cruise ship or see large...More

We hiked this trail today. One of the best maintained trails we have hiked in Alaska. The forest areas are lovely with gravel on the trail. Some elevation changes may be a challenge for some, so don't be surprised. There are bridges over little creeks...More

The walk to Battery point is an easy walk. About and mile in length. Good trail. Easy to bring the kids and dogs. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view at the end.

Sorry, there is no public transportation to the Battery Point trailhead. You can walk the 1.5 miles down Beach Road, or there is a private van service called Haines Shuttle.
