Part of trail will be closed for work

Boulders on Perseverance Trail need to be removed

If you’re looking to hike one of Juneau’s most popular trails Tuesday or Wednesday, you’ll have to take an abbreviated trek.

Part of Perseverance Trail will be blocked off on Tuesday and Wednesday as workers remove two boulders that tumbled onto the trail about two miles from the Basin Road trailhead. The boulders are blocking the trail. Work will happen between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on those two days, according to a release from the City and Borough of Juneau.

The section of Perseverance Trail between the west Red Mill Trail intersection and the Granite Creek Trail intersection will be closed while the crew is working. Trail users can use the Red Mill Trail to detour around the work area and access the east end of Perseverance Trail and the Granite Creek Trail.

The CBJ release advises hikers to use caution around the work and to follow the direction of trail workers.
