Worth the effort !
Sep 2021
This two mile hike, switchback after switchback, is doable for anyone "half-way" fit - - this 70 yr old did it in two hours with a good number of short rests - - always at prime locations admiring the lush rainforest and vistas. Waterproof/resistant hiking shoes/boots a necessity.

Cardiovascular and Strength Training Trail
Jun 2021
I drove out my campsite, Glacier Nalu around 6:30 am to find a drive thru coffee house.
Parked my rental in the free parking lot on the corner of 8 th street and Basin Road. Walked on Basin Rd to find Mt Robert’s Trailhead sign.
The morning was not sunny and inviting, It was foggy ... but it was not windy or raining.
The trail is well marked, comfortable and steep. If you are not comfortable with hills or walking upstairs, you will feel it.
Personally, I view walking uphill as an ideal workout.
The heart and lungs feel it, the leg and derrière muscles feel it.
Cardiovascular and strength training in one session.
Once, I reached the tram with snow on the ground, I turn back to head down the trail.
An elderly man was hiking up with ease and strength. I stopped to sincerely compliment him on his hiking abilities.. He rewarded me with a genuine soulful smile.

Good and Easy Trail
Oct 2019
This is a good and relatively easy trail at the top of the tram. Admittedly I did not do much of it since it was raining, but the visitor center did have rain ponchos. There were plenty of activities and displays at the top.

Great Workout Hiking Mt Roberts Trail
Aug 2020
My wife and I hiked from our hotel on Egan Dr to the trailhead off Basin Rd, then hiked up to the Tram. Due to substantial rain the past few weeks, the trail was damp throughout and wet/muddy in a few areas. The 2-2.5 mile one-way trail is pretty to easy to follow despite few signs along the way (thus the 4-star review versus 5-star). I would call the hike strenuous, particularly the first 1/2 mile or so off the Basin Rd trailhead. Covid restrictions have closed the tram, therefore the only way to get to the great viewing platform atop Mt Roberts is to hike. Multiple teams of hikers passed us, many locals who hike the trail routinely (one guy mentioned he was only hiking the trail once today instead of his usual twice). We're in moderate shape and it took 1.75 hours to go up the trail, one hour to come down the trail...conservatively plan three hours for round trip hike.

Great hike with stunning views
Sep 2019
We had some spare time while in Juneau and we decided to go for a hike on Mount Roberts Trails. There are a few different route to choice from. It is also very steep but has a well maintained trail. There is also some stunning view points over looking Juneau. If you like being outdoors and hiking this is a great place to spend a few hours while in Juneau.

Spectacular views

Went up the tramway on my cruise to Alaska this past summer. Spectacular view of Juneau Harbor and the area. Take a hike up the trail once you get up top for more great views. Don't miss the museum and film for some history if the people.

grand view of Juneau
Sep 2019
Easy to reach the base station from the cruise harbor and take the tram up the mountain to enjoy an excellent view of the town and harbor. You can see your cruise ship in the harbor and if you are early enough, there are short trails you can walk around the visitor center.
The price of the tram is expensive for $35 for a short trip up the hill but unless you want to try the vertical climb, there are no other choices.

Well signposted and good tracks
Sep 2019
Even though it was raining we ventured out onto the trail. We did not go all the way to the top but did get to Father Brown's cross. Trail was well signposted and in good condition.

Not an easy hike but well worth it !
Sep 2019
Take Basin Rd out of town and you come to a parking lot of the right hand side. The trail is 2.5 miles to the tram station and it is a strenuous climb. Great views on the way up and if you keep going you get to Father Johns cross. Is almost harder coming down than going up. Worth the time.

Expensive for what it is
Sep 2019
A short tram ride to get a just OK view. The hiking trail not particularly interesting and not marked with information.
Way too expensive for what it was
