Cons: Steep and rough trail. Difficulty: Intense Distance: 2.5 mi. (one-way) Elevation Gain: 3,337 ft. Trail Type: There-and-back Congestion: Light Trail: Infrequently maintained Parking: Limited — Street Camping: Tent While Mount Bradley, more commonly referred to as Mount Jumbo by locals, stands out from anywhere downtown, this trail takes a little bit of determination to find. It is sandwiched between two houses on the 300 block of 5th street in South Douglas. It starts out with an open forest, beautiful bridges, stairs, and boards across streams and muskegs before turning straight up the ridge line. Often intensely rooted and thick mud, the trail makes a quick elevation gain of 3,337 feet over the course of 2.5 miles making it one of the faster, but more intensive trails around. The work you put into this trail is what you get out of it. Rain,...

Jumbo Trailhead Don’t let the name fool you. Left over from the Treadwell mine complex, this ditch ran water for the flume, today it connects several trails on Douglas Island. This trail is one of the few that Juneau has to offer which stays in one particular ecosystem type for its full extent. This old growth rainforest trail crosses many of the powerful streams from rain runoff and snow melt. These clear streams provide the crowning gem to the sea of green trail users can pass through. Starting from E street  and ends about a quarter mile below Eaglecrest Ski Area, the trail covers all of west Juneau connecting Mount Bradley, Blueberry Hills, Dan Moller Trail, and Eaglecrest. This point-to-point trail is around 14 miles with little elevation gain or loss making it wonderful length for training or an all day walk about....

The trailhead is a little parking lot sandwiched between two houses about half way up Pioneer Ave. Heading south after the roundabout on Douglas Island, Cordova Street is the first right which will turn left at the top in Pioneer Ave. The trailhead is a little gravel lot on the right only marked by a little square brown skier sign. From the lot, the trail begins its gradual but steady climb up to the Dan Moller cabin. Mostly planked, the trail has a few cool benches and a shelter before reaching the intersection with the Treadwell Ditch Trail after around a half mile. There is a little jog to the right on the ditch trail before connecting the other portion of the Dan Moller on the left. From there the trail...

Only about a mile long with 100 feet of decline down to the beach, the Rainforest trail passes through some of Juneau’s grandest moderate old growth forest. The thick high rising Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock that surround the trail provide shelter for a thriving understory. The trail emerges from the forest on the northernmost shores of the island where Fritz cove and Auke bay meet up with Stephen’s Passage and a stellar view of the Chilkat Mountains unfold. The rocky beach can be slippery and awkward to explore, but is definitely worth the effort. Seals, sea lions, eagles, porcupines, and bears frequent these shores along with a host of seabirds. For the lucky, or the patient, porpoises and whales can be seen from...

For that short month, this trail is packed up and down, but for the rest of the year this trail remains relatively quiet. From the parking lot at Fish Creek bridge the lower trail heads out into the mud flats that are very important to the local sea birds a provide a wide array of nutrients for tidal life. The upper portion is about 2.5 miles long and heads up to Fish Creek road, what locals call Eaglecrest road, for their beloved local ski hill. There is another lot about 2.3 miles up Fish Creek Road where the trail and road intersect. Fish Creek park has proved to be a resilient estuary. Even through dredging and early settlement activity the area remains a thriving ecosystem.  According to the Juneau Trails Project “Almost every bird species recorded...
