The glacier/ice bridge/cave is super neat and one of a kind, you can literally see it dissinegrating and melting in front of your eyes, so it feels absolutely stunning to be in its presence. Near the trailhead there is a sign saying a large chunk fell on April 2nd 2018 and it is dangerous to go inside, when you see huge chunks and rocks falling down in 10 minutes of being there you can see this is true, my fiance still went inside just for a minute. Be aware that (coming from an experienced hiker) this is a treacherous trail if you dont want to get wet, there are MANY cold river crossings if not frozen over, or dense bushwacking. No snow on the trail in July, but lots of bear poop, though we saw no wildlife.
