Need to Know

Be sure to haul your skiff or kayak above the high tide mark and tie it to something strong. The boardwalk trail is extremely slippery when wet – hiking poles are suggested. This is a remote trail with no cell phone coverage. Be sure to bring along your camera and a VHF radio; as well as the ten essentials on any hike in Alaska's backcountry. There can be a lot of beach trash. Please pack out a little with you.

Description

The trail starts in the forest and crosses into muskegs. Pass by the first lake before re-entering beautiful old-growth forest. The trail then emerges onto a two-mile long sand beach in Sea Lion Cove, at the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
