The 3,819-ft Mount Roberts is one of the signature features of Juneau. It’s a mainly wooded mountain, but the views from the peak are spectacular. There are some excellent running options here, but it’s moderate to very challenging trail running. One can take a tram to the top of Mount Roberts and hike/run along the ridge.
Perseverance Trail. Run all or part of this 4-mile trail, which travels along Gold Creek at the base of Mount Roberts, steadily climbing 1,400 feet. The trail generally has good footing, but there are a few tough sections. There are some fantastic views! Access from Basin Rd. ROUTE MAP
