A side trail from Perseverance that breaks off 2 miles into the hike, this trail is generally muddy because of the beautiful waterfalls and snow that resides on the mountains until early summer. (And there’s extreme avalanche danger in winter.) But it’s a great day hike, and if you keep to the left you can access the alpine high country of Mount Juneau. There are beautiful alpine lakes and wildflowers along the way as you gain over 1,200 feet in elevation. This is a great trail to see black bears, and there are salmonberries here in late fall.
Distance: 1 miles
