The surrounding rainforest is primarily Sitka spruce and western hemlock with some cedar, and the landscape features hills and mountains, with elevations reaching 2,800 feet. Brown and black bears, moose and Sitka black-tailed deer make their home in the area around the cabin (bearsafety information). Bird species in the area may include swans, geese and bald eagles. Recreation: Anglers can fish for King salmon from May to July, pink salmon in July and August, and silver salmon in August and September. Crab, halibut and king salmon are also available in nearby saltwater. Hikers can find a surfaced planked trail about 600 feet from the cabin that leads to an unmaintained 10 miles of road system built in the early 1990s. Hunting is also available in the area during designated seasons.
