Rainforest Trail

On our last full day in Alaska, we went on a rainy day hike on the Rainforest Trail at the north end of Douglas Island.

The lush old growth forest held wild blueberries ripe for snacking.

While the entire trail was redone to accommodate wheelchairs, there are still tricky little sections of the original trail that were left behind for the adventurous.

As we moved along the trail, I was surprised by the changes in scenery.

At the end of the trail, we found ourselves on the shores of the ocean overlooking Shaman Island and Outer Point. 

The rocky shore was a bit slippery, but we had fun beach combing.

We didn't stay long because of the downpour, but we enjoyed this hike! We're going to miss you, Juneau!

Fees: none
What to bring: rain gear
Length of hike: 1.5 miles, roundtrip
