We recently hiked the Herring Cove trail, and it is spectacular! He have hiked all over the world and this is a favorite! It is not too long, 1.3 miles one way, but can be combined with other trails to go any length you desire. It is a new trail built in 2010, and is so well done.
Quite steep, through lush rain forest. The lake at the top is somewhat redundant as the journey is the best, not the destination.
There is some beautiful construction to get you over creeks and through a bog, well done by the Forest service.
Anyone travelling to Sitka that enjoys a hike, this is a must do.
Take sawmill road past the Fortress of the Bears to Herring Cove. Trail head is well marked.
