"When in Petersburg, hike out..." Alaska Things to Do Tip by richiecdisc

Alaska Things to Do: 496 reviews and 834 photos


When in Petersburg, hike out to Petersburg Lake.
Lush rainforest hike of 10 miles brings you to the USFS cabin already described. Spent three days out there and even in bad weather, it was just fantastic. The picture was taken during one of the brief periods of sun.

Directions: Have to get a boat over to Kupreanof Island, just across from Petersburg. We stayed in a nice place called Lodge Across the Bay over there and the people provided the ride over. Seems pretty typical.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

      It really is. Thanks for getting me back to my own page which reminds me just how amazing that trip was. I wish I had another four months to tackle it again with my wife.
