Our trained naturalist will lead you on a guided hike through the well-maintained trails, where you can learn about the history of IRP, the amazing animals that utilize this habitat and wildlife corridor, and the unique natural history of the area.
 
The Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies is excited to offer two seperate options to explore this amazing habitat:
1.5 -hour hikes where the naturalist will guided you around ~2 miles of rolling trails and show you beauitful views of Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains, beautiful flowers, and hopefully an animal or two!
 
3-hour hikes where the naturalist will guide you around ~4 miles of semi-steep trails, where you can take your time to take pictures of beautiful landscapes, explore the hidden trails of Inspiration Ridge Preserve, and again, see some wildlife!
