Sheep Creek Trail
- Point Bishop starts along Thane Rd
Lonely Planet review for Sheep Creek Trail
SE of Juneau along Thane Rd, is a scenic 3-mile walk into the valley south of Mt Roberts. The trailhead is 4 miles from Juneau, at a staircase on the gravel spur to a Snettisham Power Plant substation. The trail is fairly flat in the Valley, from where you scramble up forested hillsides to the alpine zone. Once above tree line, many hikers follow the power line to reach the ridge to Sheep Mountain (4238ft).
You can continue from Sheep Mountain over Mt Roberts, returning to Juneau along the Mt Roberts Trail. This is a 10- to 12-hour day hike.
