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.

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.
