Yakutat is known for it's un-crowded, wide open beaches with waves up to 100 yards long that shift between chest high to a few feet overhead depending on the stage of the tide. Ride the waves with a magnificent view of Mt.

A short two mile drive from the lodge will take you to over 70 miles of sandy beaches on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Forest Service has made the Yakutat hiking trails accommadating and very enjoyable with marked trails that are well groomed. Walk just a short distance to see one of the few authentic, hand carved native totem poles in Southeast Alaska. Go to to learn more about hiking trails in Yakutat.
