I carried a large camera backpack up this steep trail and that was a big mistake. The waterfall and Beaver Lake were great.

Absolute great hike! I didn't get to the top but did see the waterfall. If you need a guide, call Specialized Tours and talk to Debi. She will get you your own private guide. I was traveling solo so did not want to hike alone....More

If you have to pick just one, choose this hike. Two plus waterfalls and a beautiful lake are just a few of the attractions. The whole hike is amazing. We had a bit of rain, but it didn't make hiking difficult.

Wow, of all the excursions we did in our cruise, this was the best and it was Free! For a Miami girl in her 50’s and hubby in 60’s that have never done any kind of hiking, never mind uphill hiking, we were a little...More

What a lovely short uphill hike. It is not too strenuous with great views all the way. Look for unmarked trail to the top of the falls. Great place to play in the waterfall!

This was a great hike for our family. We went in the rain, so some spots/rocks were slippery. A few areas had rainwater raging down the mountain, which we enjoyed seeing and hearing. We did not make it to the end of the trail; we...More

This is a wonderful somewhat challenging hike along beautiful water falls leading up to a very interesting hike around a nice lake at the top of your climb.

It is worth the visit. And check out the other hiking trails too. The trail system is great and very clear.

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever taken. It is a little steep at first so keep that in mind. The trail work was something. I can't imaging how much time was taken to move so many rocks and make this trail what...More

A beautifully constructed hike through an area as primitive as it was centuries ago. Lush flora, a chance encounter with fauna (deer) and the sublime peace and quiet of the rain forest. A perfect way to begin a Sitka day.

Thank Gary S

The entrance to the trail is only about 1 1/2 miles from the poet so you could probably walk to the trail or take a uber. The trail has several routes so could be a 1, 2 hr hike or longer depending on your choice of route.

I would say not. There is a small portion, near the parking area, out to the first bridge that would be accessible, but the main trail is quite vertical. But so beautiful!

Hello, Would you mind sharing how you got to the HC trail? And how was your hike? We will be going in September and not sure what to do in Sitka. Thank you very much.
