Explore Mount Juneau

Mount Juneau is one of the most popular mountains in Juneau, Alaska, thanks to the gorgeous clear view of the downtown region of the city as well as the well-maintained trail. At its peak, Mount Juneau stretches to 3,576 feet. The easiest way to reach this peak is by hiking the Mount Juneau Trail, which is about a three-mile trail (one-way).
