READY to see eagles, deer, salmon and black bears fishing for salmon in the rushing waters of Ward Creek? This Alaska hiking excursion will take you along a highly groomed trail that winds and climbs through the lush Tongass National Rainforest peeking over the stream. Occasional resting spots make it compelling to stop and listen to the rushing water while taking in the unique blooms and peaceful moments.
SET out on your journey to the outskirts of Ketchikan on the edge of Tongass Narrows to experience a slice of culture from the past. 14 beautifully colored totem poles on display were recovered and repaired as memorials to honor chiefs from long ago. Your adventure will take you on a short walk through the woods and majestic scenery to a place where these amazing cultural icons have stood watch for untold generations. These totem poles reflect of the high culture, legends, and ancient art of original Alaska people.
