We went later in the day to avoid the cruise ship impact of people to the city. We had an easy ride to the top and we observed tribal members carving totem poles, a rescue eagle up close, and had drinks/snack at the bar. All...More

The ride to the station at Mt. Roberts is well worth the sometimes long line to either get up or down. The hiking trails are not too difficult and the views afforded are great. Leave extra time as the lines to board can be long.

After hiking at the Mendenhall Glacier, our shuttle dropped us off at the tram and we took it to the top and walked the loop trail. The trail was more difficult than I expected, but it was hot for Alaska (around 80) and I was...More

The trails were far more extensive than I thought going in and I wish we'd saved more energy and time for the Mount Roberts trails. If you enjoy hiking and scenic views, plan to spend several hours at the top.

Nice views from the top. Then walked one of the trails, which is fine to walk alone. I walked past the cross a little bit, but didn’t go much further. I don’t think you need to worry about bears.

We walked from our cruise ship first thing in the morning to the tram with our family of 4. It was over $100 for our family to ride it up. We spent time on the shorter trails and in the nature center. The highlight for...More

I walked this trail when on a stay in Junea. There are two possibilities: going up part way in a cable car or walking from down town Junea. Most people go via the cable car which means that the walk up is quiet as far...More

We eagerly headed for the Mount Roberts Trail to experience the rainforest of Alaska. It was extraordinary with thrushes, stellar jays heralding our ascent to top for views across the bay. We ate a hardy lunch at the station and then headed down with our...More
