Date: November 28, 2017

Want to see Dall sheep? Tufted puffins? A brown bear fishing for salmon?

The Kenai Peninsula Wildlife Viewing Trail is a string of overlooks, trails, and other sites where you can look for your favorite Alaska wildlife. Whether you’re visiting Alaska for the first time or a lifelong resident, the Kenai Trail offers the inside scoop on the best places to go. Try it out for photography, birding, or a family outing. No matter what the season, with 65 sites to explore you’re bound to see something interesting!

The Kenai Trail grew out of a partnership with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and Kenai Peninsula communities. Each town selected nearby sites that locals valued for watching wildlife. Every community has sites nearby, so take some time to explore what the Kenai has to offer. It’s a winning situation all around – visitors exploring the trail spend more time in communities, which in turn helps local businesses and reminds people of the value of the Kenai’s outstanding wildlife.

What time of year do owls start hooting? When are the caribou hanging around?​ Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula Wildlife Viewing Trail Guide offers a calendar of wildlife activity, in-depth information on what birds and animals you might find at each site, bear safety tips, habitat descriptions, and cultural tidbits. It also provides directions to the sites and what amenities are available.
You can purchase Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula Wildlife Viewing Trail Guide from various local stores and visitor centers. You can view the guide online at www.kenaipeninsula.org. Free quick-reference site maps are also available at stores and visitor centers on the peninsula
