View from Mt. Roberts

Recommended Posts

From the top of Mt. Roberts, there's a mountain between you and the glacier. But if you want a good view of the glacier the east loop trail from the glacier visitor's center was very good. icon_smile.gif But it takes 3-5 hours to hike it. icon_frown.gif But the whole route is nice (glacier/lake view, waterfalls, ...) icon_smile.gif

 

The tram itself only takes a few minutes. The rest is however long you want to stay up there.

 

In early Aug, we took the last tram down at 10pm.

The Mendenhall glacier is in "the valley" and the tram up Mt. Roberts is downtown they are about a 20 minute drive apart, you can take a bus or a cab, I'm sure they have trasport to the glacier on the dock.

You can also rent a car inexpensively in Juneau, go to Mendenhal and St. Therese for under $35.
