Great trail! For someone who lives in Oklahoma it's a wonderful and unforgetable expereience.

Great little trail, easy walk, great scenery.

This is a long, flat hike. Well marked and maintained trail. Passed many people, a few campgrounds, bear and fox scat, saw a grouse, moose and beautiful glacier views. Heading out looks different from returning. So glad to have gone, will do it again!

I took the a water taxi to derby cove/north beach. then we walked to south beach without going to the fort. after we took the loop trail almost to the top of the alpine trail and then took the rest of the loop trail to north beach. alpine was slightly overgrown.

One of the most spectacular hike we ever did. Only met two other hikers on the way. Overgrown in places but perfectly marked. Quite step at times.

Beautiful trail. We didn’t go all the way. We just hiked one hour and we went through a beautiful forest, cross a couple of bridges and saw salmon. We ended up by the beach and then came back.

We only hiked to the second bridge across Tonsina creek then took the beach back to the first bridge. We saw salmon in late August under the bridge then a black bear on our way back!

We kayaked 5 miles to the cove and started the hike there, so we did not have to worry about the tide. The kayaking was beautiful and enjoyable. There is a couple of pit toilets there but not much else. The fort was fun to explore and we made it to the other side of the fort to see spectacular views of resurrection bay. We ate many berries along the hike! Kayaked back to seward and called it a day after about 8 hours of activity! A great day.

Took the water taxi to the north beach of Caine’s head. Then did the loop from there to the fort to the south beach and back. Great hike of about 6 miles with amazing views of resurrection bay

Loved this hike! Be aware of tide you might get stuck for a little bit waiting for the tide to go out. When I got back to my tent a black bear had ripped into it and was still around not bothered by the five people yelling at it to back off so we packed up and left that night we camped at Tosina point.

Trail starts steep but with fairly good footing by rocks and roots. Some loose gravel. Nice view of the lake, town, an mountians.

Backpacked this trail two summers ago, definitely recommend staying a night so you have time to go up and check out the old fort, then you can take a water taxi back out the next day or wait for low tide again. One of my favorite trails of all time. You have the ocean, you have mountains, and you have a piece of history to freely explore.

This was the perfect way to (literally) step into some of the best of what Alaska scenery offers. Beautiful trail with lush greenery and a shimmering blue lake that's warm enough to take a swim during the summer months. Could have spent much longer exploring the offshoot trails, but the couple of hours around Dewey Lake will be forever remembered.

If you want a great view of Skagway you just have a short semi-steep climb to get a great view over the boat harbor. As you continue on the lower Dewey lake trail, if you veer to the right you will have a straight walk to the end of the lake. As you come around the back side of the lake, it has a lot of large rocks that you have to traverse and a lot of walking over roots the entire way. . Probably not good for people who are not used to doing this type of activity.

Hiked 7/23 afternoon. Nice long walk in the rain, a bit chilly.

Loved this trail, very easy for a nice stroll. Would be a great place for trail running. Saw some men salmon fishing. Great camping spots too. A few geocache spots too!

Hiked at +3.5 & +3.9, definitely doable but some super slippery rocks that forced us to walk around in the water. The Callisto Cabin is 10/10 - plenty of supplies, nice and warm at night, the outhouse was well maintained. I’d recommend rain boots of some sort, especially if you’re hiking above a -3. tide. Overall, amazing!

Starts out on the logging road but by the time you start descending into the bay the forest is rich and healthy and and the views are memorable. I enjoyed the wild blueberries and the salmon berries. Saw several eagles, only a few people. The walk in campground was very appealing. Don’t let clouds or light rain scare you away; it’s probably even more beautiful in the clouds than sun. A short walk up and back to the beach if you don’t do the whole thing to Craig’s head. Make sure you make it to the beach.

Steep climb well worth the scenic view of Skagway. Also the lake is beautiful the trails around it and the water running through is so peaceful.

We just did first part of the trail. Great fishing spot.

Accurate description - first approx. half mile is steep, then flattens out to a beautiful, scenic, very easy hike around the lake. The west side is very easy walking, the east side has a few climbs over roots and rocks that might be less comfortable for some people. You can do this hike in 2 hours or less from/to Skagway harbor. If you wish to extend, you can add the trail to Icy Lake and Reid Falls. Together, these trails fit into a day easily - we did both while our cruise ship docked in Skagway. If you have to pick just one, I recommend this over the Icy Lake/Reid Falls trail - it's definitely more scenic and rewarding views, a bit easier walking and a tick shorter, too. But both are beautiful.

Amazing views.

Awesome trail. Beautiful views

The "Description" and "Getting There" links for this trail are spot on. After the steep first half mile, it flattens out to a beautiful easy trail run. I stayed to the right and followed the signs and the view from the far end of the lake (near the hydro sign) are STUNNING. The opposite side of the lake was turned rocky and more like a hike in secrions. LOVED IT!

Nice and easy hike. Bus stop just across from Ward Lake Road makes getting to and from simple. 1/2 Mile quick hike up Ward Lake Road leads to Frog Pond Trailhead easily connecting with numerous trails in the area. Ward Lake has a loop trail around it roughly just over a mile in length. Nice scenery and very flat wide gravel trails. Bus runs on the hour and this is a great quick hike after visiting Totem Bight State Park. $5.00 all day bus pass well worth it and an inexpensive way to get away from downtown for a few hours.
