Herring Cove Trail Hike

I’ve been thinking it’s time to update my Sitka Trails site. It’s hard to be believe that it’s been so long it doesn’t even have the Herring Cove trail in there. I had also heard that the recent rain event had hit the trail pretty hard, and I thought it would be interesting to see the results.

Connor, Rowan and I made the trip out there and found overcast conditions, but no rain. There was clear evidence along the trail of the heavy rains from earlier in the week, and I took some pictures of the worst spots. Still, there was nothing impassable, so we didn’t have any real trouble doing the loop (with a side trip for me to get some gps track for the newer section of trail coming up the hill on the Beaver Lake trail side).
