Kenai River trails offer a range of hikes for all activity levels winding through forest, with a beautiful turquoise river in view. The Kenai River Trail meanders along two sections of the river through forests of spruce, aspen, cottonwood, and birch. This trail is the only place to hike anywhere along the Kenai River, a world-class trout and salmon stream. Scenery, fishing, and late-summer berries are all in good supply. Eagles, waterfowl, terns, and gulls hang out along the river, and bears are fairly common here during the big sockeye-salmon runs in June and July.
