Juneau Hike Program


Footgear

Trails in Juneau tend to be slippery, wet and rugged. Waterproof boots with good support and tread are recommended. NO TENNIS SHOES! Dress appropriately (layering is suggested) and recommended footwear is specified for each hike. (Rubber boots are suggested for all trails when it is raining.)

  • Extra socks

  • Basic first aid kit (moleskin, band aids)
