Hike what Backpacker Magazine has ranked one of the top ten costal hiking trails in North America. The trail starts just west of Miller's. This tide-dependent walk follows the inter-tidal coastline to Caine's Head State Marine Park where there's plenty of trails, to South Beach, through the fort & around the area.
Once at Caines Head there are more trails and Fort McGilvray to explore. The fort was the strategic command center during World War II, use your headlamp or flash light to explore the underground maze of passages and rooms. You can also take the water taxi to Caine’s Head and just explore the hike up to the top to see Fort McGilvary and then back down to the south beach there for beachcombing.
Tonsina Beach is a good hike (3 miles round trip). There is a big beach there for beachcombing and a salmon stream. The trail there also starts near Miller’s Landing. Many people go there to watch the salmon spawn in the streams. Some go there to get a limit of salmon in the salt water (salmon are protected in Alaska in the streams in our areas because it’s their spawning grounds). It is an easy place to get a limit of salmon!
Thumb Cove is across the bay. You have to take the Miller’s Landing water taxi to get there. There are miles of beaches to explore, a salmon stream, great salmon fishing for pinks and chum salmon, and good berry picking too (in season).
Miller’s Landing has some great hiking areas for you to explore. The Caines Head 5 Mile Coastal Trail has been listed as one of the top
ten hikes in Alaska and begins right next to Miller’s Landing.
Please note: Miller's Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has a very short tourist season which can make it difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.
If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation. Miller's Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays, health issues or other unforseen hardships. We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.
Please understand that Miller's Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations. Thank you for your understanding.
