To enjoy an easy trail with intermittent views of the ocean, take this woodsy path to Gull Rock along the southwest side of Turnagain Arm. Watch for moose on land, beluga whales in the water, and bald eagles in the air. The views of the Arm and the mountains beyond are especially nice in spring and fall when the trees bordering the trail are free of leaves. Hikers of any age will appreciate this gentle trail. The trail, an old wagon road built in the late 1920s, leaves the Hope area and parallels Turnagain Arm west for 5.1 miles. Although today’s trail ends at Gull Rock, the wagon road—no longer maintained or free of brush— once connected with the broad flat area west of the Kenai Mountains, where a tractor trail now follows a natural gas pipeline from the Swanson River oil field to a crossing of Turnagain Arm. The reminders of earlier days are fascinating: the remains of a cabin and stable on Johnson Creek near the end of the trail, a mossy old bridge that once crossed the creek, and the ruins of a sawmill.
