Mount Ripinski is a popular day hike for local residents of Haines and features two distinct trails that converge on the south side of the summit. They are known as the Young Road Trail and the Piedad Cut-Off, and vary dramatically in difficulty and rate of altitude gain.
The mountain was named after "Sol Ripinsky" (possible latter Ripinski in 1911 when he became a US citizen) of the Haines Mission established by Sheldon Jackson.
