West glacier trail is nice and easy with a few nice viewpoints. No jokes about it, this is a long steep hard climb to the top. I was able to see Mt. Fairweather over the Chilkats. I dropped down and had lunch while looking at Mendenhall towers.

Easy hike through the end of West Glacier Trail, but once you're on Mt. McGinnis Trail, it's trail sniffing. Keep an eye on tape markers for it will help you navigate through the unmarked trail. Awesome views of Mendenhall Glacier and Mendenhall Valley. Dogs are allowed on the trail.
