  • When visiting Sitka, this spot is a must! Located up a small hill behind the city, you'll have breathtaking views of the mountain range and water, including Mount Edgecomb (when it isn't hiding behind clouds)! Also available are informational plaques telling you about the rich history. Stairs and well-marked path are available.
  • If he was beautiful, and the information was fantastic. For such a small place it has a very robust and interesting history. Well worth a walk.
