“Get away from the crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I jumped on the tramway very early to get out of town and away from the crowds.
Ride up the mountain gave spectacular views and our car pilot gave a brief but very informative talk on the way up.
Visitor centre has a theatre in which they show short film about the Tlingit and the area.
Lots of different length walks you can take depending in how much time you have to spend.Informative boards at key points around the trails to help you.
Beautifully quiet and peaceful, just what I was looking for. To get this though you need to get up there early.
Views are well worth the climb and the test of the place -it was well used by the locals . The first three people I met were native to Juneau.

“Mt. Roberts Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The trail is good if you go beyond the cross so you can see the spectacular views of the inland glaciers but the only way to get to the trails is to take the expensive tram.

“Mt Roberts Tram”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Seems a bit expensive but it's same day unlimited rides...not totally useful for a cruise ship but depends on how long you're in port, of course. Nice trails, awesome views of Gastinaeu harbor and overall great scenery...nice people, too.

“Great hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Park downtown and follow the signs for a 1.5 mile hike to the miner's museum. Follow the signs uphill for a 2 mile hike to the top. It takes about one hour. Awesome views, we came across a huge black bear just off the trail, luckily he was not aggressive. The restaurant at the top is great, try the crab wrap! Take the tram back down for free when you show your restaurant receipt, great views of the city and channel.

“What a view !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The trail was part of a tour with our guide, Ashton. We also went on the tram and had tea on top of the mountain. Ashton was a great guide, who made things fun with his sense of humor. He also explained interesting aspects about the area. Great tour!
