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. The hike is over rolling hills that are covered in beautiful wildflowers from June to early August and fall colors in mid-August and September. The trail heads 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 hut before heading back to the trailhead. Level of Difficulty: Moderate. The hiking time is about 3.5 hours.
