At the end of Halibut Point Road is an easy and beautiful, hour-long loop that takes you through fairytale, moss-covered rainforest on rocky beach fronts. At low tide, you can walk out to some tiny, rocky islands—though watch your step for shallow tide pools full of sea stars and anemones. At high tide, the sea comes right up to meet the rainforest, which is equally as magical. Stay on the main trail that loops around by the waterfront, and off the shortcut that bears right and foregoes the views of Sitka Sound.
