A trail leading by forest, wetlands, and a lake, with options for day hikes or overnight adventures. The trip from the Montana Creek Trailhead to Windfall Lake, the only overnight trail traverse near Juneau, features lush forest, pretty creeks, meadows and wetlands, and half-mile-long Windfall Lake. The best camping is at the northwest end of Windfall Lake, which is an easy, popular hike from the north trailhead and a good family overnight trip.
