Description: Access to the Mount Juneau Trail is made from mile 1.5 of Perseverance Trail. The Trail is clearly marked by a sign reading “Mt. Juneau,” and immediately begins ascending to the 3576′ summit. The climb is aggressive and exposed, but generally runnable. It is important to note that the trail traverses several dangerous avalanche paths, please do not attempt when there is significant snow pack or an elevated avalanche risk.
The summit is marked by a cairn and invigorating beauty. Once on summit, runners are greeted by 360º views, herds of cautious mountain goats, and vast expanses of ridge top meadows. From the summit users may return to the trail head via two established routes; the first is the Mount Juneau Trail the second is the Juneau Ridge Trail.
