    head of Anton Larsen Bay

    Anton Larsen Bay terminates the unpaved highway essentially emanating northwest from the town of Kodiak. Dotted here and there with small communities, the road passes through some excellent scenery before opening upon the bay, a typically gorgeous inlet for this beautiful island. Watch for bears along small creeks and rivers that culminate into a single channel that empties into the southern edge of the bay, and look for small sailing craft in its numerous coves.

    Bear Display at the refuge Headquarters

    Bear Cub

    There is a sow and 2 cubs on display at the Kodiak Wildlife Refuge Headquarters building. The Sow was killed and the cubs had to be euthenized becuase they were still too young to survive on their own. For those of you that are against killing animals for just stuffing. I'll get more information about the bears the next time I'm out there and post it here.

    Kodiak Island Wildlife Refuge Headquarters

    You can watch videos and get some great information that you might need for entering into the refuge. The building itself is in a nice setting. Most people that visit always ask about the Bears! The spots on the photo were rain drops on my lense as the day I chose to go was quite rainy.

    There aren't any markers on the trail and there are a few parts of the trail that extend off the main trail but if you follow the most heavy beaten path you won't have any troubles. Or you could carry a GPS. There are maps of the local hikes available from either the local Audobon Society with also sponsors hikes each weekend all through the summer for a small donation. or you could get a map at the visitor center.

    The trail

    Termination Hike

    The hike can be done several ways. The way we did it was taking the coastal route until we arrived at Termination Point and then we took the interior route back to the trail head. We haven't had rain in a while so the hike was quite dry. But if there has been alot of recent rain it would definately be a wet hike in places. Here in the picture you can see Vt member Kaloz with my son and Duke the dog.

    Termination Point Hike

    North Sister Mountain

    You will have to drive to the end of the road on the Monashka Bay road. You will know that it is the end of the road as there isn't any more road! The trail head is about 11.5 miles from downtown Kodiak. The hike isn't that hard to do and it's a very enjoyable hike through spruce forests.

    Drive or walk up Pillar Mountain

    view from Pillar Mtn

    There is a road that goes to the top of Pillar Mountain. It is situated right behind the town of Kodiak. It is a great drive but only go on a clear day if you want to see anything! As we quite often have low clouds that will block out any view that you might have. It can also be a nice place for a leisurely walk if you're in decent shape. You could also walk down the backside of the mountain. The trail connects on to the main road and from there you can walk back to town. Round trip Aprox 4-6 hours!

    This is a family shot at Termination Point. It was overcast but wasn't raining so it was a great day. Monasahka Mountain is in the background. Thanks to Kaloz for snapping the picture for us.

    The Rolling Hills on the way to Termination Point

    Kaloz enjoying the hike

    There are gentle rolling hills pretty much the whole way. Nothing very strenuous though if you are of fair health you shouldn't have to many problems on this hike.
