Unforgettable! Don't be in Juneau and skip this. The coolest thing I've seen on a hike. Trail isn't too hard though sometimes you need to locate the markers in the rocky parts.

AMAZING trail. We took a different route, but got the same result. The ice caves were an unforgettable experience. The bluest blue you'll ever see in shapes only Mother Nature could design. Get out here and hike it!

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.

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