We took the tram up and then did some hiking from there. We were there on a rainy day and a hike up wasn't feasible. On top we visited the raptor center, which is really just one eagle, Lady Baltimore, and her handler.  Lady Baltimore’s rescue story is sad but uplifting, and her knowledgeable handler is more than happy to...

We hiked to the top of the trail to the Tram station, it was a long and slow hike but very nice with great views out over the valley. The hike through town to the start of the trail from the cruise port is up hill all the way but worth the trip. Once we were at the top we... More

Mt. Roberts Tram Upon advice from the lovely Meredith, who works at The Hanger, we chose to walk 'up' the mountain to the restaurant at the top, planning to take the tram down. She was very correct! To try to walk down the mountain, over the wooded path, would have been much more difficult as the angle was quite steep.... More

Took the trail up to the tram building. Hike is about 2 miles (one way to the top) and was challenging due to the snow on the trail. There are several areas that are a little rough, and drifting made areas of the trail very interesting. Probably a trail for older kids and adults. Younger kids might complain. At the... More

Mount Roberts Tram is an amazing experience. You will get the chance to see The beautiful Alaskan Juneau from top.

We frequently do this hike as it takes us about 1 hour to get to the lodge. We hike frequently but we are talking and viewing along the way. Young people can do this in less than a hour. Lots of switchbacks so not extreme but challenging. Lodge is the best for viewing the gastineau channel, mountains and downtown Juneau.... More

Went for the views, not the hiking. There were good views of the city and was an excellent opportunity to take pictures.

As you have to climb to the mountain it is better to choose a good weather, cause up there could be cold. I think the best time to climb is in the beginning of the season, when you can still find lots of snow. In the end of the season is usually more sun, the view is amazing!

We enjoyed our hike up Mt. Roberts. I was six months pregnant and my 60-year-old parents were with us, and we all managed the trail without any major trouble. It got a bit strenuous toward the top, but we revived over a nice lunch at the expensive, but tasty, restaurant at the top. The hike took us all morning (~3... More

This trail starts at the bottom of the mountain. I read the first part going up to the tram station is very steep. As we were limited on time (ship leaving port) we took the tram up the mountain. Due to the time constraints I was only able to hike the loop trail and a spoke off the loop. For... More
