The weather wasn't so great - which you can't control - but it was a nice walk nonetheless. The totems are interesting and there are placards near each to explain the significance. Very picturesque with the water views and benches for resting if you need...More

An evening walk after a day of business in Sitka. We watch the salmon in the river, walked to the edge of the harbor, enjoyed the totems, and breathed in the smells of the forest.

A highlight of our Sitka tour. It was a rainy, windy day but still beautiful. Impressive totems... I thought best of all ports. The woods and trees were gorgeous, and the inside of visitor center was beautiful with all the wooden wall carvings. Special place....More

To get to the park, you just take a leisurely stroll along a paved walkway. It is not a long or difficult walk. It is a very nice walk with things to see along the way. You will enjoy it, even in the rain.🙂
