We hiked through the Tongass National Forest on well-maintained paths. Our guide pointed out different trees, lichens, mushrooms, and the bog. She said that animals avoided the bog because the surface could not hold their weight.

A nice little hike. There a lots of wooden steps installed to keep the trail accessible to all but the mobility impaired. I might of like a few more informational placards to help you know what all you were seeing, but then again it is nice not to have a lot of clutter along the way. Nice hike

I am so glad I get to visit and explore the Tongass National Forest. it is a World treasuer and one the most beautiful places I have ever been to.
Visitor Center smack dab in the middle of Ketchikan, the Salmon Capital of the World. Neat exhibits and a film, plenty of artifacts. Parking lot across the street, $5 admission. Worth a visit to see the local story. And, if you collect them, they have 3 stamps!
Karen gave us a wonderful tour of Ketchikan's rain forest, beach, and wonderful local places. Karen is very knowledgable and funny! We have a great time with her. I highly recommend Chris and Karen!
