About

Tongass National Forest

Overview

Cascade Creek Cabin is located on the mainland in Thomas Bay, south of Cascade Creek and east of Spray Island. It offers access to a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, hiking, hunting and viewing wildlife. The cabin can be accessed by either a float plane or boat from Petersburg. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Recreation

The Cascade Creek Trail begins near the cabin and offers an array of hiking experiences. The trail is moderate for the first mile, then gains elevation and becomes more challenging. The trail provides access to waterfalls, a whitewater canyon, pristine lakes and alpine areas frequented by mountain goats. The trail connects to Falls Lake and Swan Lake, where rowboats with oars are available. Life jackets are not provided. During the summer months cruise ships also take advantage of the hiking opportunities and often anchor near or in front of Cascade Creek Cabin. This increases the amount of traffic in the bay and on the trail during those months.

Natural Features

The cabin is located at the edge of a second growth spruce-hemlock forest, along a gravel beach, near the mouth of Cascade Creek. The beach fringe in front of the cabin is flat. Forested slopes directly behind the cabin become steeper with elevation, eventually rising to Cosmos Peak, which is at 5,000 feet. A variety of wildlife make its home in the area, including deer, moose, mountain goats and black bears (learn about bear safety).
