Trail Description:
The first 0.3 miles of the Heney Ridge Trail is a wide, flat, crushed aggregate surface offering easy hiking for all ages. From there the trail travels through Spruce/Hemlock forests and open muskegs to an alpine environment at 2000 feet elevation offering views of the Gulf of Alaska and Orca Inlet that are spectacular. The open ridges provide the more experienced hiker the opportunity to explore the surrounding peaks.

Please note that the beginning mile of the Heney Ridge Trail is an easement through private lands and all land owner rights should be observed. Contact the local Forest Service Office for further details.
