We had a big group of 14 people for this classic hike. The weather was overcast, but good for hiking. We parked on Valdez Road and walked the logging road to the shorter loop trailhead. We hiked clockwise through the new and the old forest to Village Bay where we stopped for a short break. We continued on the rocky trail with moss, lichen and water views. We stopped again for lunch on the rocky bluffs at the corner of Village Bay and Hoskyn Channel where we enjoyed the view of the calm water and migrating ducks. We continued on the trail overlooking Hoskyn Channel stopping briefly at the small cove and then hiking back along the logging road to the vehicles. 6.7 km, 3 hours.
