It is a very pretty church built in the 1930s. However, I wouldn't go out of your way to get to it. We stopped by as we were on our way to Eagle Beach. Highlight of the visit was spotting whales and a sea lion.

This is a beautiful place right on the water. It's landscaped with gorgeous flowers and a short walk to the quaint rock church, shrine and viewing point. Easy drive from Juneau or Auke Bay and not much to do here, but on a nice day...More

After getting off the plane, we rented our car at Juneau Car Rentals (great value), bought food for a picnic... and then we drove N up the Juneau Coastline. this was a quiet, beautiful, restful stop on our journey.

We rented a car and was able to drive here some 12 miles away from the cruise ship. Very scenic area , stone church, harbor seals and fishing boats around us. Would recommend if you have a car rental for sure.

What a beautiful and serene place. Watched an otter playing from the walk way, I swear he was putting on a show!

This is another beautiful spot to visit, with so many things to see. The stations of the cross are outdoor works of art that are just amazing! They are large (5-6 feet tall?), built of stone, with carved pictures. Wear sturdy shoes, as the ground...More

While in Juneau, we checked this place out. They have beautiful grounds. The flowers were in bloom, which enhanced the beauty. We also watched a porcupine for awhile which was neat.

Nice walking trails to allow for introspective thought. Nestled in the trees with some beautify views of the shoreline. Wonderful to see a Cross that mariners can see from the waterside.

You leave the glacier on the Glacier Spur Road, take a right on Mendenhall Loop Road to Auke Bay - there, the road "ends" at a loop and becomes Glacier Highway/Veteran's Memorial Highway - you'll head to the right on the... More

Any time is a good time. Open 08:30 - 08:00 during summer. It is about 22 miles from downtown Juneau. There is no bus service out there. Taxi from downtown probably $50-55 (one way). Might be cheaper to charter a car or... More
