I have hiked/run this trail for 30+ years. Relaxing and a good workout.

Beautiful trail, not difficult. We hiked to the unfortunately named Glory Hole, which was disappointing. Some lovely alpine and waterfall views along the way made it worthwhile. 16km hike in total (started in Juneau proper).

Great trail for all levels. Side trails to increase difficulty.

First stretch is not much fun with direct sun and no views but it is worth every second to take the whole trail! Amazing waterfalls and river views and the scenery at the end makes it all worthwhile. Still quite a bit of snow at the very end of the trail but still passable.

Really lovely hike, not too strenuous. Lots of great scenery and little side hikes as well. Also did the Mount Juneau Trail (in five hours!) which was stunning and very rewarding.

Great, easy hike up Gold Creek. Starts with easy access from Basin Road. Well maintained trail but not wheelchair or stroller friendly. Can be fairly busy on weekends. Branches to Mt. Juneau Trail or Granite Creek Trail make a longer, more difficult day hike.

It was great. The trail kind of just a ends at a washed over bridge. Now sure if I actually finished the trail, but it was pretty.
