Go Camping and Hiking

Get outside in Juneau. Explore the area via more than 250 miles of hiking trails for all skill levels. Trails take visitors in, around, through and up to mountains, forests, meadows and more. Some of the most popular hikes in Juneau range from downtown trails to “out the road” adventures. (“Out the road” is a local phrase used when describing anything located on the Glacier Highway spanning from outside of Juneau to the literal end of the road near Echo Bay.) Check out paved nature walks accessible by stroller and wheelchair or try something a little more challenging. Either way, the trip is sure to offer views that don’t disappoint and plenty of wildlife to see. Guided trips are available and some even pick up travelers right at the hotel and transport them to the trailhead.

Get really adventurous and end the hike with a night under the stars. There is nothing like campfires and sleeping bags to really get connected with the beautiful wilderness in the Juneau area. Well-maintained campgrounds in the area are complete with picnic tables, fireplaces and RV hookups.
