Bus transportation takes you to the trailhead of the Starrigavin Muskeg Trail. Set out from there on foot with a guide well-versed in Sitka's flora, fauna, and history and the surrounding area.
Enjoy great mountain views (weather permitting) as your hike begins with a gradual half-mile descent to Starrigavin Creek. From here, it is a half-mile level boardwalk through the Starrigavin Estuary bird viewing area. Cross the road and begin the 1.5-mile Mosquito Cove Loop Trail, gaining approximately 300 feet in elevation.
Walk along the beach back to Old Sitka and return to the pier.
Restrooms are available at the Starrigavin Estuary bird viewing area. The entire hike is potentially four miles long and is for those in moderate shape; however, each group sets its own hiking pace, so the length of the hike may vary between two and four miles.
