Update: Work Underway on Skagway’s Interpretive StreamWalk Trail


Phase 1 project plan


StreamWalk is an interpretive trail program designed to provide visitors to Skagway with easy access to popular natural and historic locations in and around Pullen Creek and Pullen Pond. The 1st phase of the project is now in the construction phase, which includes a gravel trail, four stream overlooks, replacement of the footbridge south of Pullen Pond, a dock on Pullen Pond, and a series of signs that offer information about Skagway’s natural and cultural resources.

StreamWalk is funded through a Federal Highways Administration Federal Lands Access Program Grant with matching funds from the National Park Service. The project partners include Municipality of Skagway (MOS), Taiya Inlet Watershed Council (TIWC), the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad, as well as support from Alaska Power and Telephone and Skagway residents. Corvus Design of Juneau and NorthPoint Construction of Skagway are responsible for the design and development of StreamWalk.

Interpretive signs for the trail were provided for public viewing in September, 2015 with comments and suggestions for improvements now being incorporated into the project. The 1st phase of the project, including placement of interpretive signage is due to be completed by Spring, 2016. During the winter of 2015/2016 TIWC and MOS will be working with Corvus Design and the public on the 2nd phase of the project with the goal of finalizing a route that directs pedestrians to the Moore House Property, and eventually, City Hall.
