Mount Riley Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A moderate trail traveling by forest, glaciated mountains, canals, and inlets surrounding Haines, from the highest point on the Chilkat Peninsula. Mount Riley, at 1,760 feet in elevation, is the highest point on the Chilkat Peninsula.
The peak, a rock outcrop in a sea of forest, offers sweeping views of Haines, Chilkat and Chilkoot Inlets, Taiya Inlet, and Lynn Canal, and the glaciated mountains all around. The Mount Riley Trail from Mud Bay Road is the shortest and most direct route to the top. The Battery Point/Riley Summit Trail from Beach Road is slightly longer, but it’s also more varied and scenic."
