While on the highway look for the McKinley Lake Cabin sign and trailhead. From the trailhead, a 2 1/2 mile hike will take you to the Forest Service public cabin. Sockeye salmon viewing opportunities exist here and at the location another 75 yards past the cabin. Salmon viewing at this location is from mid July to mid August with best viewing in late July or early August.
