Harbor Mountain

Sitka Sound from the treeline

Harbor Mountain Review

During World War II the U.S. Army constructed a road to the 2,000-foot level of Harbor Mountain, a perfect spot from which to watch for invading Japanese subs or ships (none were seen). This road has been improved over the years, and it is possible to drive 5 miles to a spectacular summit viewpoint across Sitka Sound. A trail climbs uphill from the parking lot, and then follows the ridge 2.5 miles to a Forest Service shelter. From there, ambitious hikers could continue downhill another 3.5 miles to Sitka via the Gavan Hill Trail.
