Southeast Alaska Birding Trail Haines

Picture Point

A great spot to watch for waterfowl and seabirds!

Nukdik Point, also known locally as Picture Point, is a scenic spot between the town of Haines and the ferry terminal where you will have scenic views of Haines including Fort Seward and the waters of Chilkoot Inlet. This is a great spot to watch for waterfowl and seabirds and an overall great spot to just enjoy the view. A road-side stop and public access was developed by Haines at this location in 2014. Be aware of adjacent private property when exploring this area.

Directions: 

From 2nd Avenue, take Lutak Road approximately 2 miles to the road-side pull-off near Nukdik Point (Picture Point). This site is also a nice walk from town. So, if you’re looking for a scenic walk and a bit of exercise, park in town and walk to the point.
