I visited Haines on a cruise and had originally intended to hike up to Mt. Ripinski, but it was rainy and cloudy, so the locals advised against it. As an alternative I headed left from the cruise port and up to the trail that led to Battery Point. It turned out to be a great choice - a beautiful, well-maintained trail through some stunning woodlands and then down along to the coast to a rocky point. Tons of wildflowers, some amazing scenery and not a lot of people. There was a turnoff about half way through the hike that led off to other trails but I didn't have time for it. This is a great option if you are in Haines and want something that is beautiful but not overly strenuous.

Walked to the point, heard some whales but came out of the forest a little too late to see them. Good easy hike to point.
