If you divide the trail into two halves, the first half brings you to the top of Mount Roberts, and the second half leads around the top of Mount Roberts. I had walked all over Juneau, and I had no desire to do both. We...More

The trail is well mark and clear! It has steep areas and snow patches. Follow the trail and you will safe. Give yourself plenty time to go up & down. A map is ok but not all drastically necessary due to many trail markers.

Relive the gold rush and the hardship these people went through to make their dreams reality. The locals are well-informed and provide lots of information and stories.

Hike up the trail for great views of Juneau, the channel and Douglas Island. The trail has add ons so that you can extend your hike or take the tram down for only $10.

First off, from the Tram basin, we had to walk through town, gradually uphill and around to a gravel road that took us to the back side of Mount Roberts. After somewhere between 3/4 mile and a mile, we started the 2.5 mile trek upwards....More

You can pay and take the Tram up from downtown Juneau which is around $35. Or, you can walk 1.5-2miles past downtown Juneau and then start a very intense, rooty, muddy hike of approximately 3miles, 1800 feet elevation to... More
Is it easy to get to the trail from port? We won't have a car but would love to do a nice hike on our own.

Yes, it's an easy walk from port on town streets to the trail head.
I'm taking a cruise in September and would like to do a day hike. Would Mount Roberts be a good trail to take. We will be docking in Juneau at 1:00 P.M. How long is the hike? Thanks.
