Sitka National Historical Park Trails


ADA-accessible hiking, cultural, winter use


Two loop trails pass through this park and are used by walkers, runners, skiers and others; Tlingit history, Native totems and interpretation add to the peaceful natural scenery. This is the site of the 1804 battle that marked the last major Tlingit Indian resistance to Russian colonization. From mid-summer to late fall, Indian River, within the confines of the park, is teeming with spawning salmon.


1.5 mile loop
