Mount Edgecumbe Trail and Cabin – Sitka AK

Description

“Mount Edgecumbe can be easily ascended in a day hike. Although finding marine transportation from the nearby town of Sitka to Kruzof Island is often the biggest obstacle, once hikers reach the island and the Mt. Edgecumbe’s trailhead of Fred’s Creek, the trip to the base of volcano is relatively flat while passing through open expanses of muskeg. There is a three-sided shelter at about mile 3.5, halfway to the mountain and a small campsite right before the final ascent . At about mile six, the climb begins. Soon tree line is achieved and a series of posts guide hikers through the scree if there is bad weather. The top is barren and often windy.

The trail and original cabin were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps.”
