Description

Great, short trail along the Cordova harbor breakwater with interpretive signs and benches at the end. It's a great spot to observe the action of the harbor and take in the views of Prince William Sound. Wildlife including otters and various types of birds are usually seen as well.

Flora & Fauna

Otters and seals can sometimes be spotted in the harbor.
During low-tide many birds (especially migratory birds during the appropriate seasons) can be viewed on the mudflats.
