JUNEAU - Trail Mix, Juneau's nonprofit trail advocacy organization, received a $23,900 grant from the Alaska-based Rasmuson Foundation to construct a wire safety railing along a portion of the historic Perseverance Trail near downtown.
The railing will include three strands of steel wire along 900 linear feet of the trail to protect hikers above the cliffs between Ebner Falls and The Horn, high above Gold Creek.
The railing will be installed by Trail Mix crew members this summer.
