Drive across the Gastineau channel bridge to Douglas island and stay to the left towards downtown Douglas. Take a right onto E street and then a left onto 5th street. The trail head is located approximately a half mile down the road in the 300 block.

Prepare to climb some rocks and roots! This has been the most difficult hike yet for me. The meadows are absolutely gorgeous and it helps that there is a boardwalk in the beginning, but just know after the boardwalk you’ll be going up, up, and away! The top is breathtaking, especially being able to see the backside of Douglas.

Kept a slowish pace starting at 7:30 am start and reached the top around 10. Mist at the top, light breeze. Mid /low 60’s.
Great hike, lots of washed out sections exposed roots good for climbing when needed. Trekking pole were very helpful on the way back down.

Be prepared to scramble and climb tree roots!
This was a really fun evening hike! Started at 5pm and it was a great time to catch the evening light on Juneau, Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts.

beautiful, recommend you do it on a dry day as the whole Trail you follow a creek up the mountain and gets very slippery. the first part of the trail well maintained and then as Creeks are it goes straight up lots of roots lots of pulling yourself up sometimes on all fours. the last part of the hike is high Meadow following a ridge through patches of snow tilll you reach the top. I did this on June 4th and there is lots of snow still. I saw the sun set up there. you're pretty exposed from the top If the wind starts to blow or the rain starts to fall so be aware of that. recommend you do it on a sunny day.

Great short / moderately challenging day hike. Got off trail for a few minutes near the top .....sent a baby black bear climbing up a tree. That's a marvelous feeling. Fortunately momma bear wasn't around or wasn't hungry so I lived to tell the tale.
