Gull Rock

Gull Rock Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A trail with loads of diversity: birch woods, overlooks with
mountain and ocean views, tundra slopes, an avalanche gully
(that can hold snow into June), and mossy forests of hemlock
and Sitka spruce. The trail crosses the forested slope above Turnagain Arm to Gull Rock, a prominent headland that projects well out into the arm.

This is one of the earliest hikes to open on the Kenai Peninsula in the spring. Watch for mountain bikes; the trail is popular with bikers, and the narrow trail dips and twists enough that visibility is limited. The trail is a popular hike or ride for campers at the Porcupine Creek Campground."
