Have you ever wondered how old the rocks under your feet are? Or why gold is found here? If so, this tour is for you! This tour will highlight the general geology of Downtown Juneau, and how our local geology has influenced downtown development and history.

Terrain will be downhill or flat, with no stair-climbing.
