The Ward Creek Trail, which is groomed to high US Forest Service standards, is moderately rolling and climbs to an elevation of about 500 feet over 3 miles, traversing a gentle mountain slope. Along the way, you'll be treated to a variety of wildlife, including waterfowl, woodpeckers, and, occasionally, Sitka black tail deer and black bear foraging salmon in the stream.
The trail is pristine, lined by old growth spruce and hemlock, and you can hear the rushing waters of Ward Creek. Berries, flowers, and skunk cabbage are abundant in season. While on the trail, your experienced local guide will help you become more closely acquainted with the issues in the Tongass, including resource management, wildlife management, and the local economy.
