Sitka Trail Works is sponsoring a guided kayak trek to the Fort Rousseau Causeway State Historic Site on Saturday, June 25.
This trek features two hours of kayak paddling, plus a 2 1/2-hour easy stroll to the historic World War II installations. For the more adventurous, there are a few sections of difficult scrambling over large armor rock to go further along the causeway.
Contact Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures at 752-0660 to reserve a spot for just $99 plus tax (a $50 discount from usual price). You’ll see ammunition bunkers and machine gun platforms. If you intend to go inside the bunkers, you’ll need a flashlight or headlamp. Water and a snack are suggested. This trip is a good way to learn more about Sitka’s role in World War II.
Meet at 9:15 a.m. at the big blue Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures bus in the Crescent Harbor parking lot. Thank you Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures for partnering on this Sitka Trail Works fundraiser. For more information, contact Sitka Trail Works at 747-7244.
