    Challenging inclines but worth the views!
    We decided to walk the trail up to Mount Roberts and take the gondola down. We walked from the ship port, the trail was well signed posted up until we passed over a bridge then unfortunately the trail was obscured by parked cars, we ended up walking to the perseverance trail so we knew we had gone too far, we had to back track. We asked for directions and got on the Mount Roberts trail, be sure to keep an eye out for the path we were not the only ones that missed it that day. Once on the trail it is 2 miles of steep inclines along rugged uneven terrain. I am not an experienced hiker, nor in great shape and I found it challenging, but worth it when you got to the top. Wear proper hiking boots as it is muddy near the top even on a dry warm day. If you are fit and a regular hiker it’s probably a breeze. Allow yourself 2 hours if you are slower like me but the trail says an hour and half is typical. Gondola ride down allowed for great views.

    Good hike to break up the day!
    Moderate difficulty and trails were easy to follow! Great view at the top. (Same view as available if taking the tram.) Mostly lush greenery during hike itself. Recommend hiking boots (little muddy).

    Beautiful serious climb.
    A few of the reviews posted are confusing the walk around trail at the top of the Tram. The Mount Robert’s Trail is not for the casual walk. It’s a serious trek almost entirely uphill for over 2 miles gaining approx. 1700 feet. Lots of switchbacks. The Trail entry at the top of Sixth Street was no longer open. The other usable entry around the hill can be blocked by parked cars. It’s just after the bridge. Hiked with trekking poles as did others seen on the Trail. GLAD I did. Made the climb easier to do. Saw two other hikers slip either in the mud or on slick tree roots. Recommend good hiking boots or hiking shoes. Lots of mud along the way and snow near the top. A great beautiful hike to the top. The Tram ride costs $20 just to go down starting 2024. Great views and foliage. Round trip Tram now costs $55 per adult. If you’re a hiker, do it!

Fun trail at the top of the tramway in Juneau. Trail is easily marked and an easy walk. Views are incredible.

Variety of trails at the top of Mt. Roberts. Easily accessible using the tram. Good views of Juneau as well as getting further into woods.

Several ways to ascend these trails once you get to the top either via tram or walking up.
Well marked trails can go in several different ways, some wooden steps along the way.
Closer to the Tram are 2 separate decks so to speak to look over the beautiful water views below
Definitely worth the walk around

Hard but beautiful and very doable trail. At the top (last 15 minutes) there's snow and ice and it can get slick. It's also a little tough to find the tail in the snow. It's worth going a little past the tram to the overlooks. Juneau is so beautiful! It was too snowy to go up to the cross. Highly recommend!

We hiked up to the cross. The hike was a good workout. The trail is wide in spots and also more narrow with some roots and rocks but well maintained. It is mildly strenuous but we made it considering two of us were not in great shape. Worth the hike, but if you have health issues, you should probably not hike it.
