Your hike begins in anticipation of the spectacular views from the summit at a height of 1,760 ft. The trail takes about 5 hours round trip and winds its way through the temperate rain forest surrounding Haines. Skunk cabbage, false huckleberry, blueberry, devils club, and other plants can be seen along the trail. Later in the summer and fall, this a great place to find mushrooms and other fungi.
As you get closer to the mountaintop, the rain forest opens to a series of flowery meadows. The summit is a granite outcrop from which you may enjoy a panoramic view that includes the snowcapped Chilkat Mountains. These mountains rise from the ocean to over 6,000 feet.
We have included lunch for you so you can enjoy the scenery while you replenish your energy to enjoy the hike down!
