In 1882, the U.S. Navy bom­bard­ed the small vil­lage of Angoon, result­ing in destruc­tion of homes, win­ter food stores and all but one canoe. The com­mu­ni­ty sur­vived through much hard­ship. The event is still very much a part of the col­lec­tive his­to­ry passed down through gen­er­a­tions of Angoon residents. 

Clan hous­es line Beaver Trail Road in Angoon, an area that hasn’t changed much in the last 100 years. The weath­er-beat­en, wood-framed build­ings are out­ward signs of a cul­ture that has been main­tained through generations.

Angoon means isth­mus town” and offers miles of beach­es to explore: from sandy stretch­es in front of town, to clay/​mud expans­es and peb­ble and shale beach­es. Go beach­comb­ing to see what the tide brings in (most desired: Japan­ese glass buoys), or just to lose your­self in the sights and sounds of the nat­ur­al world.

The Cross Admi­ral­ty Canoe Route, a 32-mile water trail between Angoon and Sey­mour Canal, links sev­en moun­tain lakes, trails and portages that allow for kayak and canoe trav­el across the island. It’s an amaz­ing adven­ture for expe­ri­enced inde­pen­dent trav­el­ers, espe­cial­ly with For­est Ser­vice cab­ins pro­vid­ing shel­ter along the way.

Angoon’s Ceme­tery Trail is apt­ly named. It’s a well-trav­eled local trail through the ceme­tery that links up with Dan­ger Point Trail for a short tour of the wood­ed isth­mus just north of the vil­lage of Angoon. 

Dan­ger Point Trail leads from Angoon through a dense­ly-treed area north of town, toward Dan­ger Point, a per­fect spot for sum­mer whale watch­ing. The game trail can be rough, but at just 2.5 miles round-trip, it’s a fair­ly easy hike through old-growth for­est that ends with a spec­tac­u­lar view of Chatham Strait and near­by islands.
