Land. The land has provided a home and livelihood for the Tlingit and Haida people of Southeast Alaska for thousands of years, and continues to be a source of nourishment, growth, and opportunity today.
Goldbelt holds land in Hobart Bay, Alaska, 70 miles south of Juneau. Goldbelt’s land in Hobart Bay is defined by its rugged timber, previously utilized in Goldbelt’s early days for logging operations. Today, Goldbelt utilizes our Hobart Bay land holdings as part of the carbon credits program, where we have committed our big timber to remain untouched and serve as a carbon sink offset, benefitting the environment.
Echo Cove and Cascade Point
45 miles north of town is Juneau’s “End of the Road” at Echo Cove. Goldbelt currently possesses land at Echo Cove. Even further north, off the maintained road system, lies Cascade Point, where Goldbelt holds land as well. Potential development opportunities for both holdings are currently being explored by the Goldbelt Board of Directors and management team.
Goldbelt holds land on the west side of Douglas Island. Now reachable by the nearly three mile gravel “Pioneer Road”, Goldbelt’s lands at West Douglas were previously limited in development opportunities due to limited accessibility. The Board of Directors is eager to further development on the West Douglas property, and is currently working in conjunction with various community organizations to continue progress on potential projects on this property.
Downtown Juneau is framed by several mountains, including majestic Mount Roberts. Goldbelt leases land from the downtown waterfront up the steep mountainside to the top of Mount Roberts. The Goldbelt Tram climbs 1800 feet into the alpine wilderness, where guests can learn more about Tlingit culture, enjoy majestic views of the Gastineau channel and surrounding peaks, and explore miles of trails throughout the temperate rainforest and alpine meadow.
