  • It’s best to do this trail as a loop – start at the north end and end at the south. To get to the north end of the trail, head towards the airport and you will see a sign saying “rocky ridge trail” to the right. Head behind the large blue maintenance shop and you will see the road heading up the hill. Eventually you will break off the gravel road to a walking path only. Keep heading up and you will eventually see a sign where you can head straight towards the lake or head right to continue the loop. Skip the lake and head right. Keep going and you will eventually come back down to town near the south end of the trail. It’s worth doing the south end of the trail since this offers the best views of Seldovia from above.
