Getting There
Once in Valdez, go down Meals Ave towards the small boat harbor. Turn on to Kobuk Drive, once rounding the corner before going around the boat harbor, turn left in to the parking lot with covered picnic tables. Park in the parking lot there. Walk down the road past the gate and take the first right up a well maintained gravel trails.

Dock Point Trail is a very mild trail in Valdez. It's good for small children, or evening walks after dinner. The main trail is well maintained. Towards the end of the trail there are a couple wooden platforms with railing to lookout from above the cliffs of Dock Point. The trail can be done in 30-45 minutes at a leisurely pace.

The trail provides decent views and can be a good place to watch sunsets on a clear evening. Eagles and the occasional great horned owls can sometimes be observed from the trail as well as seals and sea otters can some times be seen in water below.

Don't venture too far down the point off the trail as it is private property.
