Seduction Point is a coastal hike with chances to view a variety of marine life while traversing the tip of the Chilkat Peninsula. The hike follows the coastline on the west side of the Chilkat Peninsula to Seduction Point, the point of land that splits Chilkat and Chilkoot Inlets. The trip features coastal meadows, rugged points and small coves, and good bird and marine-mammal watching. If you’re lucky, you might see humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, seals, or porpoises along the coast. Also look for large paper birch trees on the bluffs above the ocean; Dalasuga Point in particular has a fine grove of birches.

Started at twin coves via kayaks. nice hike. not much uphill after the initial ascent. Trail was in suprisingly good shape. trailhead pretty well marked. View from seduction pt. is awesome. Take water, not much avail on trail. Bear spray advised. A lot of scat and bedding areas noticed off of trail.
