Approximately 3 Hours
Join an experienced Alaskan trail guide for an electric mountain bike ride through the unspoiled beauty of Ketchikan's coastal rainforest. The gently sloping historical trail weaves through the Tongass National Forest under cover of towering old-growth spruce and hemlock.
The throttle/pedal-assisted electric bike makes easy work of the three-mile-long trail that follows the historic wooden pipeline to the Connell Lake Dam, making the trip accessible for riders of all abilities and skill levels.
Gather by the warm campfire at a rustic creek-side camp to hear stories and enjoy an Alaskan-style snack of s'mores and hot beverages.
A guided nature walk highlights the flora and fauna of Southeast Alaska, including a carnivorous plant called the sundew, which uses tentacles with an adhesive 'dew' to ensnare small insects.
Saddle up for the ride along the Connell Lake Pipeline Trail to return your bike. Conclude with the scenic drive back to the pier, narrated by your guide.
