Southeast Alaska Birding Trail Hyder

Dike Road

Watch for Western and Eastern kingbirds in the pilings on the sedge flats near this site.

The Dike Road is a good spot to access the tidelands and mudflats near Hyder. This is a good location for shorebirds and seabirds. Also there are more records of Western and Eastern kingbirds in the pilings on the sedge flats near this site than any other single location in Alaska, and is a good place to look in June and July.

Directions:

From Hyder, walk or drive about 0.5 miles south on International Street to Warf Road, also known as Dike Road. Continue to follow the road onto the dike which accesses the seaplane base and boat harbor
