We hiked the gnarly uphill trail to the top--it's pretty steep the whole way with lots of large steps in places. The rewarding view at the top is SO worth all the sweat & panting! We had a beer at the top, saw a marmot,...More

Good access from the pier. Regular trips up and down. Hiking trails require reasonable fitness level and offer some good views, however the view from the platform is a bit restricted due to the trees and foliage. It would be great if the obstructing branches...More

We purchased the tram tickets on our ship for 34 dollars. The tram is wrote on the pier where the ship drops you so you don’t have to walk very far to get on. When I saw the tram and the cables it was suspended...More

Good hike and gets you out of town away from the cruise boats. You need a reasonable fitness level as the walk is steep. However, the scenery is beautiful and worth the effort.

You access this trail head by hiking up through the town bearing right. It climbs a switch back trail with lots of roots, steps and rocks to the gondola, then you can continue up to the cross on the top of the mountain. About 2...More

It was raining when we were there, so we didn't do the whole trail. Lots of Eagles and ravens along the way, totem figures carved into trees and grand views across the landscape. It helps to be fit for this one and not accessible for...More

If you cruise into Juneau this tram is very close to the dock. Buy tickets right there. Around 35.00. Very solid ride to top. About 1800 ft. Stay as long as you want then ride down. Beautiful views of the entire city. Food available at...More

Nice way to spend the morning, even in a light rain. Enjoyed the views from the tram, took the nature walk and liked the exhibits. Woke up the eagle (Lady Baltimore) and browsed the gift shop.

If you only go up for the view, it's totally worth it. If you are into trekking this is a short trip but has a lot of kodak moments. It does have a few steps here and there. You will also get to see the...More

The tram to the top of Mt. Roberts is a smooth ride. I have ridden other trams where they swayed and were jerky going over poles. I was told; however, that these cars can sway when wind is blowing. The view at the top is...More
