After a wonderful visit to the Last Chance Mining Museum at the trailhead for the hike, we hiked up the Perseverance Trail past the water falls all the way to deep snow near the top of the basin. The trail is mostly easy walking with views in every direction. Lots of flowing streams and mountain terrain. Our day for the hike was blue skies and warm temperatures, something of an anomaly for Juneau, but we loved it. If you want to take a walk the gold seekers traveled, this is the one. You'll like it.
