Cross Trail

Save to my Account

Sitka’s Cross Trail is so named because it runs across the bulk of the city, but you won’t know that you are just a few steps out of civilization. One of the best sprawling muskeg and mountain views of Sitka is at the trail’s Yaw Junction (which also spills nicely into Indian River trail), and there is a particularly beautiful part of the forest by the Sitka High School trailhead. Take note of the map of the trail and its access points at its Baranof Street trailhead and try using this trail while exploring the city on foot or by bike.

Difficulty: Easy
Length: varies
Access from city center: Multiple walk-up and drive-up access points throughout city
