This 6.5-mile hike outside Juneau explores a wooded basin tucked below Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts. The route begins on the Perseverance Trail—the first road in Alaska—before turning right onto the Red Mill Trail at mile 1.7. (Look for views of Ebner Falls at mile 0.8.) At mile 2.7, turn right onto the unmarked Granite Creek Trail and follow it southeast to the head of Silverbow Basin. A narrow spur trail leads to views of Alaska Chief Falls. The return route descends the basin, then follows the Perseverance Trail back to the trailhead.
