Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ok place. Not to great and not boring. The flat mud are risky unless you stay on trail with guide. You need to take a boat and catch some wild life like bald eagle and sea lions.

This is a very large area. I feel like that our cruise ship was touching many ports along it. The falls and glaciers, amazing snow capped mountains and peaks. The area is breathtaking!!

We were driven through it on our way to our Tour. The forest is lush and beautiful. We were not lucky to see any large wild animals but we saw magnificent eagles.

Took a guided tour through the Tongass National Forest and had a great experience! First off, it is a beautiful, moist rainforest with so many colours between the green trees, blue berries, and red mushrooms scattered across the scene. There are beautiful streams everywhere, which had spawning Sockeye Salmon at the time of year I went, which was amazing to see! While hiking we saw lots of cool wildlife including a family of American Black Bears, countless Bald and Golden Eagles, Belted Kingfishers and Great Blue Herons, and so much more! If you get the chance, definitely hike through this place as it is not only beautiful, but full of wildlife that you may encounter, giving you everlasting stories and memories!

Separate from the everyday world--a wonderful reminder of all that is the best! Close to nature and all of its sights and sounds!

This temperate rainforest makes this one of the most peaceful and picturesque places that make the Inside Passage magical.

Coming from the desert you forget that some places can be so green and colorful even in winter! So pretty and full of fresh air everywhere. The moss is so extensive and aromatic.

Loved all the sights and scents of the old-growth forests. Huge, towering trees. Moss-covered trees and plants, and many trees/plants growing out of old tree trunks. Waterfalls and streams in the dense forests.

Looking for a easy hike/walking trail then this one is for you. It's gets humid therefore make sure you bring enough water with you.
