The trails behind the Totem Museum are wonderful, We walked the trails in early September when the Salmon were running. LOTS of Salmon were running. 1000's of Salmon were running.
Very, very easy to catch Salmon.
Saw a few totem Poles, but not many.
We took a Sitka tour bus from town that dropped us at the Fortress of the Bear (1 hour visit) and the Raptor Center (1 hour visit). We did not know what to do after that and wasted some time. If I had it do...More
I think everyone who visits Sitka should visit this park. The history of the totems and the Tlingit people is so interesting and being able to stand next to a totem is awesome. The walk through the park is absolutely wonderful and is very easy....More
The totems were Hugh and beautifully carved. The Culture Center inside explains how and what they mean. The walk to the river through the woods was a picture out of the Wizard of Oz without the Lions and tigers and bears. We came in September...More
We learned much about the Tlingit people and their totem poles at this national park. We enjoyed walking through the forest, seeing the salmon swimming upstream to spawn, and learning about the totem poles. We loved how you could dial a toll-free phone number and...More
I am not sure what the museum costs but the outside trail was free to walk. I took a ton of pictures but they can't do it justice. I don't consider the trail wheelchair or stroller accessible unless you have an off-road one.
To get to the park, you just take a leisurely stroll along a paved walkway. It is not a long or difficult walk. It is a very nice walk with things to see along the way. You will enjoy it, even in the rain.🙂

We flew into Sitka and self-directed our entire vacation, so I can't speak to what the cruise may offer. However, we walked to the park in the rain from our hotel and did the tour on our own. It is free and self-guided. The trail itself is flat. And awesome! We took a cab to the hotel from the airport but other than that, we walked EVERYWHERE the entire time we were there. And we're in our 40's and NOT in the best shape! You're at sea level so walking is pretty easy.
