If you want to get up close and personal with the glacier this is the hike to do. I have also hiked the
West Glacier and East Glacier trail which are beautiful but keep you at a distance from the glacier. If you are hiking this trail do not follow my map and make sure you get off the WGT at the view point split otherwise you will end up above the glacier and past the caves.

It was the perfect day for a hike in Sitka. I'm a flight attendant and hiked Gavan Hill Trail on my layover. I was a little leary of bears but felt completely safe going alone. If you don't like climbing stairs find another hike. Holy Great Wall of Sitka!! Stairs for days! View is amazing and completely worth it. Didn't make it to the very top because of snow. I highly recommend this adventure!

Up the whole way, I went with still a foot or two of snow on the ground. Kind of more tiring then it had to be, to cabin is awesome and I really enjoyed my experience. Didn't see any wildlife.

Stroller friendly, a really nice walk!

Short, fun, and beautiful views of the narrows!
Not stroller friendly but kids and dogs could do it.

Incredible experience to explore the ice caves of the Mendenhall glacier!

Hiked this trail at least half a dozen times in 2016 and camped at the A-frame shelter at the top. There's an outdoor head up there too. I want to attempt the 14 mile traverse but the day I went for it, it was too foggy and misty to find the trail so I turned around before getting too lost.

Extraordinary

Amazing views and just an all around awesome hike! No matter how many times I climb that mountain it never gets old!

Explored this trail on 21 November 2016. There was a lot of ice, especially on the steeper faces but most had the cable guards to assist in climbing. We got a late start around 9:00 and headed back at 12:00 when we reached the last tall peak before the descent to the caves. It's worth a trip.

Beautiful at the top! One of my favorite hikes I have ever done but yea it is pretty steep on way up and down
