At the start of your tour you will be greeted by your professional hiking guide for a remote coastal hike along the Chilkat Inlet. We’ll drive for about 30 minutes along the Haines peninsula to Chilkat State Park. Along the way, your guide will tell you about the history and geography of Haines. It is a beautiful drive with many scenic photo opportunities. Once at the trailhead, the hike begins over rolling terrain through temperate rainforest. Your knowledgeable, naturalist guide will talk about the flora and fauna of the region.  The trail is slightly rolling as we make our way towards Moose Meadows, aptly named for the occasional moose seen grazing along the seaside.  As we step out onto the beach, we are treated with magnificent glacier views across the fjord. The trail is out and back, so depending on the pace of the group, we may continue south along the coast of the peninsula. We’ll stop along the way for a picnic lunch with a fantastic view. After lunch, we’ll return through Moose Meadows and make our way back to the pier in Haines.
