The trail was fun! It was mildly raining when my Dad and I went, but I highly recommend it anytime. Once you get to the top, the view of Juneau is really quite spectacular and well worth the uphill climb. Cheers!

Once you've made it past the tram and the tourists, then the real trail begins. Starting with a winding path up to the cross, the trail is fairly easy. From there, it is a steady incline for another hour or so. But after that you reach a fairly flat summit with rolling green hills, and a fork in the trail that leads out to the snowy mountain next door.

Up to the tram, the trail is fairly repetitive, and up. Hiking through trees in juneau, is the same wherever you are, and this trail fits right in. So if you want to hike the Mt. Roberts trail, start at the tram and head up.

Great Hike! challenging and scenic, and it's great how when you get to the top you can get a beer and sandwich at the restaurant, then take the cable car down.

Mount Roberts Trail is over 2200 Miles long and I always get a chuckle of those who state they completed this trail. But it is the easiest trail I ever enjoyed. Starts at the cruise ship docks with a tram carrying you up the first part of mountain ending at a eagle rehab site. Interesting and beautifull view over looking Juneau and the Gastineau Channel. The trail really starts at that point and it is all upwards as far as went. A mile in a sign warned about continuing at your own risk. My brain interprets that as "keep going". We got above the tree line and looked down on beauty everywhere. Didn't have time to get to the snow line up higher, but made clear to my spouse "up there" is where I want my ashes placed! After taking it all in for a while it was time to return to beat sundown. Only regret was not seeing any wildlife. I would return in a heartbeat and time it to make the snowline. Just Awesome.

This is a nice, easy, short trail. The scenery is great - if the clouds clear. Remember that you're in a rain forest, and views are very variable. The tram ride to the top is nice. The only real drawback is that you are in a major cruise ship port. Expect crowds of (Eek!) tourists!
