 Haines

THE HAINES CHILKAT BICYCLE ADVENTURE
$53 Per Person

At first, you feel like you can see all of Haines with one glance. It really takes a bit of exploring to see how wrong you are. Although small, it has a depth of history surprising for it's funny location on the Lynn Canal. One of the remnants of it's history is Fort Seward, built between 1900 and 1904, used to maintain order among the thousands of miners searching for their fortunes. The well-preserved buildings of the fort make a perfect place to start your exploration of the area. It is composed of a series of buildings now used by artisans as workspace, galleries, and bed-and-breakfasts overlooking the water.

From this point, you'll begin your guided, moderate, 6-mile ride by taking a road that connects you to one of the Mount Riley Trails. Your ride along the Chilkat River Estuary will show you the best of nature, with eagles, wildflowers, and inspiring mountain and glacier vistas all within your view.
