Fish Creek Bridge Wildlife Observation Site in Hyder, Alaska
Bear Viewing
The Fish Creek Bridge Wildlife Observation Site has become a world-class destination for viewing grizzly and black bears as they feed on salmon spawn runs from mid-July through early September. Situated in Tongass National Forest 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Hyder on Salmon River Road, this is the only bear viewing site in Alaska that is accessible by road. An elevated boardwalk runs along Fish Creek, allowing for leisurely and safe opportunities for unobstructed sightings. Other wildlife frequently seen includes bald eagles, nesting Canada geese, harlequin ducks, common mergansers, mink and beaver. Ample parking, plenty of benches and informative graphic panels add to the enjoyable experience of this day-use recreation area. Forest service personnel are on hand from 6AM to 10 PM to answer questions and ranger programs are held in the evenings.
