A challenging trail traveling through forests near streams and waterfalls with spectacular views of Sheridan and Sherman Glaciers. The Sheridan Mountain Trail starts in a spruce-hemlock forest, winding along a stream with plenty of places to stop and enjoy the vistas including waterfalls along the route. The first stretch of trail includes intermittent boardwalks crossing the wet, Muskeg vegetation that is common to the temperate rainforest in the Cordova region.
