Regarding how to access the trailhead, it seems more than a few hikers have the same trouble. Here is the key: As you drive from Kodiak toward the airport, you pass the airport, then the main East-West runway on your left. Approximately 100 yards past the runway, look for a small parking pad on your left (airport side of the road). Park here. Across the road, there is a small blue sign (maybe 6x6 inches) which marks the trailhead. Head on up from here. It's a good trail, although steep. Bring bear spray - I saw 3 brown bears on my hike this week.
