very rocky and rooty a very nice climb into the valley. this trail is my favorite i have road it on everything from a rocky mountain flow, santa cruz superlight, and a giant DH comp. this trail is as fun as you can make it. the sweet thing about this trail is that it climb up above this river and you slowly get up into a bowl of some gaint mountian no one cares about but along the wayt you gain acess to trail like mt. jumbo, granit creek or bear creek, a wicked short added decent, advanved if you will call it. the only down fall about this trail is that in the summer it has massive trafic of hikers and walkers and manly tourist.

Summary:
I frequent this trail. I live in downtown Juneau so access is perfect. The first section of trail is steep but nothing technical. There is only a 100' of technical riding. You do have to watch for bears, they are all over during the summer and there are lots of blind corners. But don't get me wrong the trail is fun. Scenery that can't be beat. As previous posts state, WATCH FOR FOOT TRAFFIC!!!

Summary:
this place has a pull on me. i ride up there as often as i can, always on a singlespeed (36x20 or 34x19). big climb up basin road and up the trail. incredible views of the mountains as you go. climb up the metal bridges and keep going. climb, climb, climb. finally reach washouts as far as the trail goes. try and keep speed controlled on the way down in order to keep the peace with the many hikers (on the weekends and during nice weather). the trail has been closed in the past due to this conflict, so be cool. be aware of avalanche danger in the winter. occasional bears in the spring/summer but the cliffs 1/2 up are more dangerous than the animals. one of the best rides in juneau.

Recommended Route:
just go up basin road (up into the obvious valley above) from downtown juneau. can't miss it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
sandy beach, mendenhall glacier trails, treadwell ditch access on blueberry hill, boy scout trail
