John Hunter Memorial Trail
(Formerly Solomon Gulch Trail)
This trail climbs through a beautiful coastal spruce forest where it intersects with the Trans Pipeline Service (TAPS) road and continues to Solomon Gulch. During 1915 an aerial tramway, 5.25 miles long, was put into operation and ran from the beach, up Solomon Gulch, to the Midas Mine (Jumbo claim). More than 1,000,000 pounds of copper were produced before closing down in 1919. The tram was run by current that was furnished by the then local electric plant on Solomon Gulch. The present dam and power station were finished in 1982 and supply power to the Valdez and Glennallen areas during the summer months.

TIME: 2-2.5 hours round trip. DISTANCE: 3.8 miles round trip.

...and not only that... but as we motored our way toward the successful crab pot we saw a bald eagle, perched on a pile AND THEN THE FREQUENT SCHOOL BUS ROLLED INTO THE SCENE! True, the FSB is tiny, you would not know the eagle was on the piling if I hadn’t told you and it was already so dark that the picture is full of digital noise, but still... It’s just Rex and I now, btw. Grandma stayed home with her tired granddaughters to watch cartoons and nap. I should also note this is the only eagle any of us have seen this trip. #frequentschoolbus #schoolbus #fsb #eagle #baldeagle #crabbing #boating #petersburg #alaska
