On Top of the World 

This 2-mile round-trip hike under the guidance of a representative from the Museum of the Aleutians takes you up historic Bunker Hill on Unalaska Island. 

Your hike takes you along the WWII-era gravel road to the pinnacle of Bunker Hill, where you can bask in the 360-degree views of Dutch Harbor and Captains Bay and witness the remnants of war-time fortifications.  As you hike, you’ll delve into the cultural and historic significance of the area, and you’ll look out for wildlife like bald eagles, Lapland Longspurs and perhaps even foxes and harbor porpoises.
