Bus transportation takes you to the trailhead of the Starrigavin Muskeg Trail. Set out from there on foot with a guide who is well versed in the flora, fauna, and history of Sitka and the surrounding area. Enjoy great mountain views (weather permitting) as your hike begins with a gradual ½-mile descent to Starrigavin Creek. From here, it is a ½-mile level boardwalk through the Starrigavin Estuary bird viewing area. Cross the road and begin the 1½-mile Mosquito Cove Loop Trail, gaining approximately 300 feet in elevation.
Walk along the beach back to Old Sitka, where you will be transported back to the dock.
Please note: Restrooms are available at the Starrigavin Estuary bird viewing area.
