Mount Juneau and Granite Creek

Mount Juneau and Granite Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Trails with easy access from downtown Juneau, quickly climbing
above treeline into alpine with spectacular views, and options for
a longer loop traverse. The alpine country of Mount Juneau, Juneau Ridge, and Granite Creek is a fine hiking destination in Juneau’s backyard. These hikes are all more difficult than the
Perseverance Trail, with which they share a trailhead."

Some really nice waterfalls in Granite Creek and mountain views along the hike. The trail is a little rocky in some areas but shouldn't be too hard for even a beginner. It rains a lot so pack a poncho or other waterproof gear. You may see wildlife, including marmots and black bears. There's usually still snow on the mountains in the summer which looks amazing next to the green of the hills and cliffs.

Hiked to the top of Mt Juneau and then the Ridgeline to Granite Creek Trail. Overall a pretty serious day hike. To the top of Juneau is very steep and I had a little bit of a hard time with this! But once we got to the top, the Ridge hike was beautiful! The only reason I don't give this trail a 5 star is because once you get to Granite Creek area, you can't find the trail and pretty much just have to follow footsteps, losing them where the snow is melted and so on. Saw a marmot, which was cool.
