Ketchikan Sports & Outdoors: 7 reviews and 13 photos
The trail around Ward Lake is a popular, easy hike. It's fairly level, and long enough to get some exercise, but short enough to make it nice for people who just want to see the surroundings. Many locals come out here to jog, so while you're walking they'll pass you up a few times.
You'll get wonderful up close look at the rain forests of the Southeast Alaska, as well as the water plants such as lily pads and reeds. Keep in mind this is in the forest, and wild critters live here too. Occasionally a pesky bear causes some trouble, and normally in the summer when tourist season is at it's peak a self-respecting bear will want to be far from the traffic.
