    Default Hinchenbrook island

    I was just curious if there is a place to land a plane on the island with tires, or snow ski's? And also if anyone knows how good the island is for deer and maybe bear (Black or Brown) or any other animal for that matter? Thanks

    About 20 years ago an air taxi out of Cordova landed us on the beach in front of the Hook Point forest service cabin at low tide. Don't remember for sure but I don't think there was a good place to park a plane above the high tide line.

    There is a small strip right by the Shelter Bay Cabin. looked to be 300 ft or so, a cub on wheels EZ.
