An exceptionally developed trail system invites exploration among towering trees and frequently breaks into alpine meadows. Trails are for all skill levels, and the views can be the most rewarding feature of any hike. The 107-acre Sitka National Historical Park, easily accessible from downtown, has well-maintained totem-studded trails and is a national treasure for all ages.
Sitka is in the middle of the finest sea kayaking country in the world. All skill levels can enjoy Alaska’s pristine waters, forest islands and remote secluded bays. Kayaking is also an excellent way to see marine life and experience the ultimate outdoor adventure.
