Hiking activities in Aleutian Islands
The area has few developed trails, but an enjoyable day can be spent hiking to Uniktali Bay, a round-trip of 8 to 10 miles. From Captains Bay Rd, turn east on a gravel road just before you pass Westward Cannery. Follow the road for a mile to its end; a foot trail continues along a stream. In 2 miles, the trail runs out, and you'll reach a lake in a pass between a pair of 2000ft peaks.
Continue southeast to pick up a second stream that empties into Uniktali Bay. The bay is an undeveloped stretch of shoreline and a great place to beachcomb. From time to time, glass floats from Japanese fishing nets wash ashore.
Before hiking Mt Ballyhoo, Bunker Hill or just about anywhere outside town, obtain a permit from the Ounalashka Corporation and check with Unalaska's Parks, Culture & Recreation Department, in the community center (next to the visitors center). PCR offers organized hikes in summer that are highly worthwhile if you're in the area longer than just the ferry stop.
