Neighborhood: Potter's Marsh
Overview

Five miles south of the Potter's Marsh Bird Sanctuary viewing platform and the Potter Section House historic site, is this newly renovated pull-off. More than a place to park, it has multi-leveled viewing of Turnagain Arm with a telescope from which you may spot bald eagles, beluga whales, dall sheep and more. This is a terrific spot to watch the bore tides (walls of six feet of water). Hiking trails lead to waterfalls (a one-mile walk). Picnic tables dot this park for public use and enjoyment. This is a no fee area.
