Bird Ridge Overlook

This is a great place to pull off the highway for a few minutes or the entire day. There is plenty of parking in a well-designed system of tiered lots. There are several easy trails that lead to close panoramic overlooks and plenty of rocks and grassy areas for picnicking. From these convenient perches you can watch for whales or a bore tide, observe eagles flying overhead, or spot sheep and black bears on the hillsides above you. If you're in the mood for a longer hike, hop on the Bird Ridge Trail or hike either direction on a ribbon of trail perched above Turnagain Arm. Whatever you decide, you won't be disappointed.
