“Peaceful”

This trail is a peaceful walk between Mount Juneau and Mount Roberts. For the majority of the trail, you walk along a glacier river who's sound is incredibly soothing. The beginning is an incline but after that, it is a pretty flat and easy trail. Definitely a hike to take while in Juneau!

We spent 5 hours hiking out and back on this trail in absolutely miserable weather. It was so much fun and we saw the most beautiful vistas, rivers and streams. We saw and heard an abundance of birds and even saw a black bear flash across the trail. The trail has joggers, dog walkers, and others throughout. It is not particularly strenuous unless you want to make it an all day hike.

Perseverance trail is one I make sure to do weekly in the summer months! It has enormous amounts of history surrounding you on all sides along with great views! The trail is relatively easy and another good one for mountain biking. The first part if the trail is where you see the most change in elevation but nothing too drastic. You can access several other trails off perseverance if you are up for more of a challenge otherwise just enjoy a stroll across the gold creek river and keep your eyes peeled for porcupines, marmots, and sometimes black bears.

We spent 8 days in Juneau hiking etc. and this was my favorite. It was a little hard to get to due to road construction but worth it. My husband's back was hurting so he stayed down by the river checking out all the old mining equipment while the kids and I hiked to the waterfalls. The scenery is spectacular and there were several waterfalls. It was mostly all uphill but gradual. There were some benches farther up if you need a rest. When we came down my husband introduced me to the friends he had made that were there panning for gold. Most locals there were very helpful and informative about how to pan for gold etc. If you're only going to hike one trail, make it this one.

This trail is one of many in the Juneau area that remind us of the mining history on which Alaska's economy was built. The trail winds along the side of Mt Juneau, through mining relics and the beauty of a South East Alaskan rainforest. Marmots, porcupines, birds and an occasional bear add to the beautiful excursion.
