Took the tram up to the top of the mountain and back. Great in order to have a beautiful view of Juneau, the docks as well as the cruise ships in port. I would think twice if it is a rainy or foged in day as we felt the view was the main attraction. Also you can visit and see... More

Lots of happy birds and good views of the city. We didn't get all the way to the top to see over the other side but one can do that if inclined

After taking the tram up, we hiked up to Mount Roberts on the trail. It was beautiful. In points, it gets steep but definitely doable. Don't give up because the views at the top are stunning!

Tired of taking canned cruise trips so we decided to wing it this time and so glad we did. We were needing to keep to a schedule while in port so we took the tram up. We went prepared for a short easy hike but couldn't stop climbing so we went much further and were rewarded wig beautiful views!! Once... More

This is the best hiking trail I've ever hiked on and I highly recommend it. My husband and I did it in around an hour and we are pretty fit for 50ish. A nice Alaska police officer took us to the trail head in his cruiser. He was a sweetie because it's about one to 1-1/2 miles from the ship... More

We enjoyed the walk up to the tramway, quite twisty and strenuous but the views were good. There are plenty of viewpoints if you need a breather!!! Plus at the tramway you are restrooms/ gift shop/ restaurant.

There are some great spots to take photos and break out the binoculars to check out Juneau, Douglas and the cruise ships.

I don't think you need to get a shore excursion ticket for this. You can just walk up to the tram office and go at your leisure. We did and when we got to the top, took the loop trail around for many nice views. I think it was about a mile but you have a choice to do longer... More

After a quick 5 minute tram ride, we started our hike to the summit. Beautiful views and we were above the eagles. I actually took pictures looking down on these beautiful birds. Lots of wildlife seen. Glad I had snacks with me, since I spent more time on the trail than I anticipated.
