Take the rather expensive tram to the top of the mountain to enjoy the Mt.

We saw mountain goats in the distance and a couple nearby had a marmot pose for them.

Our cruise ship stopped in Juneau, so we decided to hike to the top of this mountain. It was longer than we thought, almost 2 hours from the cruise ship to the peak, and very tiring. The trail is well-worn, so it was easy to follow. Our reward at the top was purchasing "I climbed Mount Roberts" T-shirts and having... More

We took the tram up the mountain and then did a walk around the mountain. The guide as excellent and explained a lot about the trees, the plants and history of the area.

The trail head is a little less than a mile from the furthest cruise ship port. The hike up is about 2.5 miles & on a well marked trail. I have done this hike twice- the first time there was a little snow on the top (may), & the second time in August it rained on us most of the... More

This is worth the trip. The cable car leaves from outside the cruise dock and you take it multiple times during the day of your visit. There is a nature trail, eagles nest and a theatre showing videos about the Tlingit culture.

Interesting trip, only problem we had was visibility due to the fog and rain. But we did still enjoy the ride up & down and getting to see Lady Baltimore. She is a Bald Eagle that they have rehabbed.

It is a great activity if day is sunny. There are many trails one can choose from when leaving the tram station up in the mountain. We took the one that leads to the cross, and the views to both downtown Juneau and mountains around is definitely worth.

This was one of our favourite things to do during our 2 week vacation. We took the tram to the top and spent a couple hours on the trails. So many wonderful sites. Hike more than just the loop...go past the cross.

There are a few nature trails (ranging from .5 miles to several miles) with gorgeous views in every direction!
