This trail is used by fishermen, nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts alike. Located on the southeast corner of Graham Island, it is a well maintained trail that has all the elements of being in the middle of nowhere. It is a relatively flat hike without any long enduring inclines. Along the way, one can encounter forested areas so thick that only a hint of daylight comes through. The trail meanders alongside the Tlell River for half the hike. The river gives a peaceful calming effect and is host to an array of life that includes spawning salmon during the fall months. There is also a log jam so enormous that you wouldn’t even realize that a river flows beneath it.
