Haines Highway (SR 7) delves through the lush vegetation of Alaska's coastal rain forest. The route parallels the Chilkat River, often providing views of the river and its activities—rafting, canoeing and salmon trapping. The abundance of salmon draws thousands of bald eagles. Scenic vistas welcome the visitor to stop to absorb the quiet beauty of nature.
