China Poot Details--Increased Bear Activity in this area. $300 Fine for Improper Disposal and Storage of Waste.

The China Poot yurt is about a 20 minute ride (~6 miles) from the harbor. It's tucked into the back of the N. side very shallow China Poot Bay, accessible when the tide provides a minimum of 8' of water for most boats to run on (check with your taxi operator about timing). The water adjacent to the yurt offers a good, sheltered anchorage for own-boaters. Suggested trips: At minus tides, butter clams can be harvested in this area. You need a fishing license to participate. Check with Fish and Game for limits and regulations. You can also start a wonderful through hike from this site. Spend a night or two at the yurt, then hike the Coalition trail into Halibut Cove lagoon where you can access the China Poot lake trail. Walk this semi-forested trail past Two Loon lake and over to China Poot lake, where you'll find good campsites and decent fishing for rainbow trout. Follow the lake trail South to the junction of the Poot Peak N. route, and the Woznesinski river trail. Hike the Woznesinski trail to the river flats and follow the braided glacial stream downriver to your pick-up at Haystack beach. You can make this hike as long as 3 or 4 days, or just walk it in 2. It will offer you some seclusion and the chance to see moose and black bear, among other wildlife.
