The students from Susan B. English School built the Otterbahn Trail (~1.2 miles) using the route of an old coastal trail. It is better to walk it at low tide so you can cross the tidal slough between the north trailhead and the Outside Beach, and come back via the roads. The south trailhead is near the Boys and Girls Club. The trail is not maintained that well. There are places where it is almost totally grown over. I did not like that so much since it is bear country. Well, just "little" black bears. I made sure I made plenty of noise, but a bear could be an arm's length away in some places and you would not be able to see it.

Directions: North of downtown Seldovia to Kachemak Bay

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
