Hiker Trail Above Juneau Tongass National Park Alaska

A hiker in Tongass National Park in Alaska, USA sits on the lush green hillsides along a hiking trail overlooking the scenery of Juneau.

The various trails found around Juneau, Alaska are endless and are excellent for hiking, biking and walking. The Mt. Jumbo trail leads this hiker to a beautiful scenic viewpoint above Juneau, Alaska where the snow covered mountain peaks tower over Gastineau Channel.

Juneau offers hundreds of different trails, some which are meant for people in top physical shape who have years of hiking experience behind them while others are meant for beginners. The Mt. Jumbo Trail is a fairly easy walk for the first 35 minutes but the rest of the climb is a difficult one. This hiker started amongst the rainforest and waterfalls which then opens up to tundra rocks followed by breathtaking views.

The round trip excursion along this trail is approximately 7-8 hours in length. Most of the trail is well defined and in excellent shape but it is highly advised not to attempt this hike on rainy days.

On this clear day, the hiker gets a beautiful view of Juneau, Alaska where the boats and cruiseships line the waterfront, all which is surrounded by the beauty of Tongass National Forest.
