Barometer Mountain  Sucess!

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.

Barometer Mountain  Sucess!

Climbed with Lane. Heard a large animal. Did they name it this because planes hit the mountain if their altimeter is not set correctly?

Barometer Mtn  Sucess!

Climbed with new friends Jill and Russ from overgrown track heading west from end of airport runway through alders and eventually thick brush...not a great way to access it in 2010
