Tram runs about every fifteen minutes. It was beautiful the day we visited and we hiked for a short time. We shared the trail with a ptarmigan hen and three chicks while hiking! The views are spectacular. The restaurant looked inviting but we had just eaten.

We decided to check out the tram as we had about 90 minutes before our excursion. It was pretty busy but moved along quickly and the views were amazing. We hiked around a bit at the top. There is a gift shop (of course) and a small shack that has an eagle that had been injured and cannot return to... More

The ride up was fantastic. Worth every penny. The view was spectacular. Got some excellent photos we didn't do the walking trails as time didn't permit but would've wanted to.

That is the best thing to do: keep walking, and do not stop till you go to the top!! We did the hiking with our kids 9 and 11 who did just great.

if the weather is good, it's worth the $ to take a ride to the top, if not, all you will see is clouds and rain. This facility is right on the piers, so if you visit by cruise ship and have an hour or so extra, go ahead and take the ride.

I enjoy tramways as they give a good overall "lay of the land" so to speak. Juneau is a small coastal city and going to the top of Mt Roberts is an excellent way to see how it's laid out. Its very safe, for those who have height issues like my daughter, and takes about 7 minutes to get to... More

Visited as part of a shore excursion with Holland America cruises in May 2015. The views were amazing but with 4 ships in town, when you wanted to go back down again you had to queue for nearly 2 hours with nowhere to sit. They really need to think about providing some comfort for their customers.

If you're willing to hike up, which is a moderate workout and takes a while, you can get a free gondola ride down if you spend a little in the gift shop or restaurant. It is well worth it for the views and the peacefulness of this hike. It's a little pricey, otherwise, but worth it for sightseeing value.

If you aren't up to the hike and want to go up the mountain, this is the way to go. The hike is tough, but beautiful. Tram is just a quick ride up and down. Restaurant and shops are nice. Don't know if it's really worth the money. We hiked up, ate at the restaurant and got a complimentary ride.
