Parks & Trails
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.
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.
