Sitka National Historical Park temporarily closes trail during maintenance building construction

Construction of a replacement on-site maintenance building has begun at Sitka National Historical Park, just northeast of the visitor center upper parking lot. During construction, the short walking trail from the northeast side of the upper parking lot connecting to the Riverview Trail will be closed to visitors. All other trails will be unaffected and remain open to visitors.

Visitors can expect to see construction equipment and contractors working from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays during the construction period, which should end about May 25. These closures will be in the upper parking lot and adjacent to the Riverview Trail. Please use caution when traveling near this area.
