This popular spot on Cook Inlet is known for its majestic views of the Alaska Range—and the peaks of Denali, Mt. Foraker and Mt. Hunter—and its sunsets. During the winter many locals come here to see the northern lights. It’s also a place to see bald eagles and beluga whales in mid- to late summer when they are chasing salmon. Point Woronzof is accessible from the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail between mile markers 3 and 4. The point was named by Lt. Joseph Whidbey, a member of a 1794 expedition, after a Russian diplomat.
