Ice on the trail starts around 850’ & is patchy until just before the snowline, which is around 1300’ - definitely don’t recommend going past the 1150’ mark unless you have cleats. Couple tricky spots coming down for sure, but no new slides or downed trees/tail damage to note.

Good for a workout. If you enjoy panoramic views you might need to wait until you get to the top to enjoy them. Worthy. Super humid.

What a challenge! You’ll see all sorts of ground cover over this diverse topography. Incredible sights, but you’ve gotta put in the work. Heading home to the ice bath now. :)

Definitely a fun hike! The trail is a pretty steep climb, but the views are spread out and are awesome. A lot of people just hike to where the trail intersects with Mount Roberts Tramway. The team will give you a free ride down. After the tram there are quite a few trails that you can take but this trail leads to the peak. There are beautiful views once you get out of the trees, there is tons of wildlife and plants. Gastineau Peak is the first peak you come too, but the trail keeps going to Roberts.

Great trail, and definitely a grinder if you go all the way. Payoffs start around 700’ with partial views, and then really open up once you get to the tram. There is a big spruce down over the trail at 850’ but it’s pretty manageable to get around. Also, still too early to get to gastineau or roberts - there are cornices ready to fall and a really sketchy trip through packed snow to even get over at the cutoff right now. Gold Ridge is fully accessible though. Either way, definitely will be back.

We loved this trail. The first half is well shaded and more rainforest-like with mud and exposed tree roots. It was slippery in places, especially climbing over rocks. The top half is very rocky and no shade; we got a mild sunburn in September. There were amazing views the entire way. It was somewhat crowded just above the tram area from people who rode the tram up but we only met only 1 hiker on the climb up to the tram and once the crowd thinned back out, only 2 towards the top. One hiker we met at the top encountered a couple of bears but we saw none. The trail fools you...you keep thinking you see the top up ahead but once you get to that point you can see you have quite a ways to go. Don’t give up - the view at the peak is soo worth it!!

Another trail we did for our Honeymoon. We weren't expecting a hike that day but after the 19th Juneau tourism shop we wanted a change of pass. did a quick Google and found the trailhead to be just outside of town. Was a wonderful hike. Very steep and it's almost as the whole trail is made up of tree roots and wood. Very beautiful but absolutely watch your footing.

A trail with variety: forest, vistas (and even a stop for coffee with the tramline! It is very strenuous but not impossible! There is a peak before mount roberts to conquer which can take one by surprise, but the views and accomplishment is worth it!

Pretty easy trail if you’re fit! Good amount of switchbacks and pretty muddy at some points! Took plenty of breaks and took it easy coming up.

Pretty spectacular views of Juneau and the inner passage. Option to take the tram part way up or down.
