Danger Point Trail leads from Angoon through a densely-treed area north of town, toward Danger Point, a perfect spot for summer whale watching. It’s not uncommon to see whales passing by on a daily basis, and bubble net feeding for krill or herring.

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 dramatic beach drop-off and view of Chatham Strait and nearby islands.

Bring your camera and binoculars and practice your bear-aware skills. There are no salmon streams through here, so bear activity should be low. However, Admiralty Island is the “Fortress of the Bears,” so it’s always possible to meet one of the brown bruins on the trail.
