Tongass National Forest
Hiking trails are scattered throughout the forest. There are about 600 miles of paths that range from easy walking paths to strenuous, steep trails. Excellent trail guides are available in many areas. Hikers will find many short trails to reach lakes and alpine areas from communities and from shoreline trailheads. Often these trails are constructed of wooden planks across extensive wetlands.
