The Skagway River footbridge, at the foot of the airport runway on 1st Ave, leads to a couple of easy strolls. To reach Yakutania Point, turn left at the far side of the bridge and follow the mile-long trail to picnic areas with lovely views. Sheltered Smuggler's Cove with its fire pit lies a quarter-mile further on.

You can make a loop by hiking up a dirt road behind the cove and descending through the woods to a pet cemetery before heading back to the bridge.
