Picnic at Moose Meadows 

After a scenic drive to Chilkat State Park, you’ll begin your 3-mile round hike through temperate rainforest to Moose Meadows. Throughout your journey, your naturalist guide will share knowledge about local flora and fauna.   

When we reach Moose Meadows, you’ll be met with magnificent glacier views across the fjord, and possibly even some moose grazing nearby. We’ll enjoy a beachside picnic here, surrounded by beautiful scenery. If we have time, we’ll continue hiking south along the coast before heading back.
