This trail, either by tram, or by foot, is worth hiking. Multiple scenic views will entertain, along with surreal panoramas. Bring water, and DEET in the summer. Access to raingear is wise.

One of my most memorable sights of Southern Alaska. The Mount Robert tram takes you high above the port city. From there you can see the city of Juneau in the distance. We hiked about 2 miles up. The mountains and valleys are stunning.

A much nicer (and cheaper) way to get up Mt. Roberts than the tram. It's a decent hike, especially from the docks, but I found that it was worth the time and effort. My 3 year old and 9 year old both made it up without much of an issue. Great views, a couple of lookouts along the way, and... More

The mountain hike was invigorating. When the cloud cover moved about each corner we turned gave another fantastic view of the Gasineau Channel.

We rode the sky box to the top of Mount Roberts on a drizzly day in September. It was a might view down on the city and we were able to see birds on the trails and lovey flora everywhere. Then it became apparent that the heavens were going to open up and let it all flow freely. One bear... More

I took the tram up and hiked for about 90 min. before turning back-views were spectacular even though the weather was not great-started out with mist, light rain but gradually cleared-trail is fairly wide and well marked-a couple coming down said they made to the icefield before turning back-wish I was 30 yrs younger!

We walked from the top of the tramway to the Cross. We weren't really dressed for hiking, but did have appropriate footwear. We did this while in our ship was in port. The day we went the weather was warm, so dress accordingly and take plenty of water. We did decide to hike back to Juneau from the platform and... More

Very doable hike if you give yourself time. Many locals run the trail to the top in under an hour. The area at the top is interesting as well.

Absolutely beautiful views up on Mt Roberts. If you have the time do and take the time to walk around and enjoy the surrounding! It's intense so wear comfy shoes and a rain coat.

This is an easy hike up. Nice views from the trail. Did this in the winter and there was still some snow up the mountains
