    entrance map to the park

    As the name implies, this park has walking trails through some of thick non-native spruce that encrusts the better part of Near Island. Walks are simple and non-technical and culminate in some of the nice beaches just minutes from town. This park and its walkways are prominently listed by the visitor center under "100 Things to Do on Kodiak Island," though technically this is not on Kodiak Island.

    Near Island in the Middle

    If you hike or drive (there is a road) up Pillar mountain and you choose a clear day you can have some great views of Near Island and the surrounding smaller islands too. You can see the bridge going from Kodiak Island to Near Island. Just to the left of the bridge in those Spruce trees is where the North End Park trails are located.

    Waterfront

    If you walk along the trails at the Northend Park you can get some great views. This one is back over the channel where you can see the canneries along the water front and you can also see some of the oldest houses in Kodiak.
