Trek Description

Trek Description: The Harbor Mountain trail to the alpine shelter offers excellent views of Sitka Sound, Baranof Island, and Mt. Edgecumbe volcano. We will drive up an old WWII gravel road to the trailhead at about 2,000 feet. Hike over rolling hills adorned with vibrant wildflowers in the summer and breathtaking fall colors in the autumn. View eagles and ravens that are frequently soaring on the wind currents. The trail takes you along the side of Harbor Mountain, across alpine meadows, before reaching the Gavan Hill Hut. There will be time to rest and take in the scenery at the alpine hut before heading back to the trailhead. Level of Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult. The hiking time is about 3.5 hours. This trek's distance and uneven surfaces require participants to be accustomed to physical outdoor recreation.
