September 06, 2016
(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The ramp accessing the Naha River National Recreation trail from the boat dock has been replaced. The Naha River National Recreation trail, roughly 15 miles north of Ketchikan, was damaged during a November, 2014 windstorm. The damaged ramp was removed for safety. The replacement ramp was formerly used at Naukati.
Hikers are advised the Naha trail boardwalk may be slippery and may need repair.
