Avalanche and landslide hazards on Basin Road & Perseverance Trail
Recent avalanche and landslide activity in the Basin Road and Perseverance Trailhead area has blocked both Perseverance access trails and portions of Basin Road. The stability of these areas is unknown and additional slide activity may occur at any time. Existing hazards include unstable trail that is undercut by landslide and avalanche debris on trails and the road, including snow, trees, dirt, and rocks.
The City and Borough of Juneau needs to perform major maintenance work but is unable to safely do so until the snow melts and an evaluation of the slides can be made.
