Larson Bay Road
lovely scenic drive above tree line brings access to the northernmost point on
Kodiaks road system at Anton Larson Bay.
Anton Larson Bay Road just before Buskin River Bridge after a large white
satellite dish five miles south of Kodiak on Rezanof Drive.
.4 - River access pulloff on left.
.6 Buskin River Bridge No. 6. Pavement ends.
1.5 Buskin River Bridge No. 7. Recommended side trip before crossing bridge drive about
200 yards up to the end of the road. In

6.1 Multiple Jeep trails lead up the hills to the right
8.5 - Ranch. Trail
9.5 - Beginning of Anton Bay. We spotted lots of waterfowl including loons, gulls, and
crested mergansers. Claimjumper saw
a crested merganser catch and swallow a fish as long as its body.
10.4 Public access dock and boat launch.
10.7 - View of waterfall back across the bay.
11.6 - turnaround. There
are camping spots here but no facilities.
This is another excellent place to put in kayaks, canoes and other
personal watercraft, as the water is very calm and protected.
Jeep trails warrant exploration. There
is a pretty creek leading into the Bay. The
jeep trail at the turnaround is the beginning of Three Pillar Point Trail, a 3.9
mile hike/bike out to Sharatin Bay.
