Caines Head State Recreation Area

Caines Head State Recreation Area

Caines Head State Recreation Area has something for everyone, sea kayaking, alpine hiking, public-use cabins, backcountry camping, and even World War II ruins overlooking Resurrection Bay. Land access for hikers is from Lowell Point State Recreation Site, two miles South of Seward. Kayaks are a popular way to access the park, and there are a few commercial operators that offer water-taxi service, too. If you plan on hiking, be sure to consult a tide table, because the Coastal Trail is a beach route that can only be hiked during low tides of three feet or lower. More information can be found at:
