This .25 mile long trail starts at Canoe Point Picnic Area meanders from a gravel beach to a spectacular 130-foot waterfall. The trail follows a creek through a spruce and hemlock old growth forest. The picnic area and trail are popular destinations for recreational boaters and kayakers based out of Craig and Klawock. During the summer and fall, spawning salmon fill the creek leading up to the pool created by the waterfall. Wildlife viewing is excellent during this time with the opportunity to view birds and possibly glimpse a black bear. Special Considerations: Please be aware of tide changes and the variable ocean conditions. Always be prepared to stay longer than expected. There is no mooring buoy or dock at this site, so come prepared with a way to anchor out.
