Point Bridget State Park is nestled on the southern tip of Berners Bay on the Lynn Canal. If your pooch is craving some time in Mother Nature, this park will pawsitively deliver. Point Bridget State Park is a gorgeous combination of cliffs, open meadows, rocky beaches and wandering streams.
Point Bridget State Park has about 10 miles of hiking
trails inside of its expansive 2,850 acres. If your pooch wants to get the lay
of the land, follow the Point Bridget Trail from the southern end of the park
to the northern boundary. As they work their way through the lush rainforest,
your doggo will be amazed at the park’s incredible beauty. This gorgeous hike
is seven miles round trip, so make sure your furry friend is up for a trek and
that you have plenty of water.
None of the other trails are quite as long as the Point
Bridget Trail, but they are every bit as amazing. The entire park is decked out
in pines, sphagnum moss, wild orchids, black lilies, and dozens of other types
of flora. As for the wildlife? Well, in true Alaskan fashion, Point Bridget is
teeming with critters. Bald eagles, porcupines, spawning salmon, black bears,
and more call this place home. Be sure to make plenty of noise while hiking so
as not to surprise the animals. Also, don’t forget to bring clean up bags and
pick up after your pooch.
Unfurtunately, there is no traditional camping in the
park. But there are three cabins available to rent year round. These aren’t
luxury units, though. With no running water or electricity and an oil stove as
the primary heat source, you will be ruffing it. Doggos are welcome as long as
their parents pick up after them.
Make no mistake; your pup will go mutts over this
