Description 

Mt. Harding is the most visably prominant peak from skagway located behind the Harbour.

Getting There 

To get to Skagway either take the ferry from any of the major ports located in Southeast Alaska, or fly directly in from Juneau

The easier way to access the mountain is via a helicopter ride from Temsco. You could also try the bushwhack through the woods, but it would be extremely difficult and would require a ride to Dyea or a kayak to get across the inlet.
