Hiking the Tongass National Forest

I loved that the group was small, just 7 of us. Leo, our guide was wonderful. He explained to us about his culture as well as pointed out all the sights there were in the forest. It was more of a nature walk than a hike. Had we known that, we wouldn’t have packed hiking boots. Tennis shoes would have been just fine. 👍

Our Favorite Memory of Alaska

This hike was the best excursion we had in Alaska and made our whole trip. Our guide Carol was wonderful and full of knowledge of the wildlife and environment. We saw multiple bears catching salmon and a doe grabbing some fresh greens just off the trail.

Beautiful "walk" but a lot of exercise.

Incredible scenery but a pace that was very brisk with a lot of elevation changes. We are seniors with part replacements so it was a bit difficult to keep up but we managed. Glad we did it - once. Guide was great.

Nice Hike
August 09, 2019
As someone who was new to hiking, this was a good excursion to take. It was called 'Meet the Trees", so it seemed more about learning about the local flora, than fauna. The guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We never took a snack break and it was not needed. There was lots to see and experience. I would go back when there was a better chance to spot some animals.
