An iconic Kodiak hike worth the climb!
This is one of the tallest peaks in the Explore the Rock program. Barometer boasts beautiful views of Kodiak. The trail is steep and there is a fair amount of loose gravel and rocks that can make descent challenging. Please strive for personal bests, rather than summits. Know your limits and make sure you pack enough water and have appropriate footwear.
The Tengausqaq Cache is up the trail to Barometer on the north side of the trail. You can watch the planes come and go from under the shade of a large spruce tree. The cache is a medium sized clear and blue Tupperware like container. Can you guess why the cache is called tengausqaq? Check your guess by clicking on the Alutiiq Word button!
