This beautiful 2,850 acre state park, located forty miles north of Juneau, offers meadows, cliffs, spectacular views, salmon spawning streams, rocky beaches, and the sea. In the winter the meadows and open forest allow for excellent skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. Point Bridget Trail begins with a packed gravel that descends to a rainforest muskeg. Approximately 1.4 miles from the trailhead are beaver meadows offering unique wetlands and fields. Horse Meadow transitions next with spectacular wild flowers peaking in late June; horses are occasionally seen here. The trail meanders in and out of the meadow before reaching Cowee Meadow Cabin . A short planked trail leads from the cabin to a berm of natural accumulation of sand and the scenic shoreline. Blue Mussel Cabin is another .8 miles of forest that parallels cliffy shoreline. The small but pretty Cedar Lake lies 380 feet above sea level, approximately 8/10th of a mile from Cowee Meadow cabin and 1.3 miles from Camping Cove. The trail is a more primitive and difficult section with some grade, many tree roots, and uneven surfaces.
