Took some family over on the ferry for the day and decided to do this hike in Seldovia. We (four adults and one preteen) took seven kiddos, eight and younger on the hike. (Their ages were 8, 7, 4, 2, 2, and two babies) The only ones exclusively carried were the four month old and six month old. All the others walked most, if not all of the way!
There were salmon berries and blueberries along the trail, which was maintained and in great condition. The trail winds through the forest with several small hills and opens out onto the beach with beautiful views and plenty of rocks and shells for the kids collections. There’s lots of roots in the trail, some boardwalks over marshy areas, and clearly someone taking care of the trail and cutting steps through fallen trees.
Trailhead is right near the elementary school and clearly marked signs if you follow to the end of Main Street.
It was a fantastic short hike with all our kiddos!
