• Eagle Valley Center: Our crews are cruising along with the new elevated walkway at the Eagle Valley Center. This walkway provides access to the SAIL Ropes Course, Horse Tram trail, Kayaker Beach, and the Amalga cabin. Construction of the walkway will be done early October. 

  • Point Bridget: Crews out at Point Bridget just finished up our work out there for the season! 80 bags of gravel have now been emptied out on the trail. This gravel replaced sections of the boardwalk and improved muddy sections. While out there, crew members also increased drainage and added culverts to help keep the trail clear of water. 
  • Hike for a Pint: Thank you to everyone who participated in Hike for a Pint this summer! A big thank you to our partners Barnaby Brewing Co. and Venice Italian Gelataria. 
  • Juneau Tourism Survey: Take this survey to weigh in on tourism in Juneau! The City and Borough of Juneau has contracted with McKinley Research Group (formerly McDowell Group) to conduct an online survey of Juneau residents regarding the visitor industry. The survey is open now at JuneauTourismSurvey.com and will be open until 4 p.m. on Friday, October 15. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete.

This trail wanders through the woods at the end of Cohen Drive and takes you to a lovely little bench. This is a perfect hike if you're looking to get outside and do something short, with minimal elevation change.

Enjoy a long, peaceful hike to the beautiful Windfall Lake. This trail is about 8 miles out and back. This trail is fairly well maintained. If you're an adventurous biker, this is a great trail to try out.  

 
  • As you hike this season, remember that you can report any trail damage on the Juneau Trails Damage Report. Pictures of the reported damage are incredibly helpful so that our crews are able to understand the issue needing to be fixed. Report responses are reviewed frequently and the issues will be handled by either Trail Mix, Forest Service, or Alaska State Parks.

Telling Alaska’s Story: New Juneau mural honors Alaska Native civil rights icon

If you've been downtown recently, you probably noticed that the south-facing wall of the Marine Parking Garage and Downtown Juneau Libray got an upgrade. 

Crystal Kaakeeyáa Worl, a Tlingit and Athabascan artist, created the mural to celebrate Peratrovich, a fellow member of the Lukaax.ádi clan.

You can read all about how this amazing, community-driven, work of art came to life through the articles below.
