You can combine a 10-mile paddle from Sitka to Kruzof Island with a 7-mile hike across the island from Mud Bay to Shelikof Bay along Iris Meadows Road Trail (an old logging road). Once on the Pacific Ocean side, you’ll find a beautiful sandy beach for beachcombing and the USFS Shelikof Cabin.

On the northern side of Shelikof Bay, 2 miles due north of the Shelikof Cabin, is the North Beach Cabin.
