During WWII the military used this route to access and maintain the fresh water chlorination stations that served the former Army garrison at Fort Mears, located in Unalaska. The trail also offered two access routes to the military hospital that was located in lower Pyramid Valley. The trail traverses the base of Pyramid Peak. Pyramid Peak was named for its shape. Along the trail, you will see streams of ice-cold water and a variety of flora and fauna. Many of the plants are rare and unique to the Aleutians. Mid summer to early fall, salmon berries and blueberries can be found near the trail.

Pleasant hike with intermittent drizzle. Overcast conditions with slight wind. Will hike again!
