Mount Roberts or Roberts Peak is a 3,819 foot (1,164 m) mountain just east of downtown Juneau, Alaska. It is noted for its accessibility from downtown Juneau and for the Mount Roberts Tramway which carries passengers and tourists from sea level to 1,800 feet (550 m) up the mountain.

There is a trail head behind the downtown that will take you up to the top of the Tramway (roughly 2 miles of steep switchbacks) and/or all the way up to the summit, where there are beautiful views to the west overlooking the harbor, West Juneau, Douglas Island and beyond in good weather.
