This is an easy run atop an historic wooden flume installed in the 1890s as part of Juneau's first hydroelectric power plant along Gold Creek. The surface is pressure-treated lumber two to six boards across. Views include treetop, waterfall, and mountain. The Flume Trail connects Basin Road
to the Highlands neighborhood and provides access to the Cope Park Trail.
