Arrive in Haines and meet your adventure guide for a private guided hike up to Mt. Riley’s 1,760-foot summit. For those that love outdoor fun, this moderate to challenging hike offers spectacular 360-degree views and an active option for stretching your legs and making the most of your time in beautiful Haines.
After meeting your private guide in Haines, you’ll enjoy learning about this area in Alaska as you hike up to Mt. Riley’s 1,760-foot summit. On the trail, wind your way through the rainforest and open meadows with your naturalist guide sharing highlights with you. Along the way, you may see skunk cabbage, false huckleberry, blueberry, devils club, and other plants and if you’re hiking in the late summer and fall, you may see mushrooms and other fungi.
As you get closer to Mt. Riley’s peak, the trail breaks out into a series of flowery meadows. From the summit’s granite outcrop, panoramic views surround you including the snowcapped Chilkat Mountains to the west, the Coast Range to the east, and the Takshanuk Mountains to the north, leading into Canada. Bring your camera!
