What a beautiful trail that allows you to see a waterfall and a glacier at the same time. I definitely recommend this to all who want an easy trail in Juneau Alaska.

Sep 20, 2016 - This is a very easy trail with barely any elevation gain. It's massively over-crowded, but the only way to get to the falls by foot. Rangers stopped a bunch of us to allow a black bear and cubs cross the trail. Eagles are flying around the area grabbing salmon where they can. We even saw a little porcupine. It looked like the kayaks were the best method of getting close to the glacier. There's also a trail on the other side of the bay, but we couldn't find anyone who knew about it enough to take us there. We also didn't have enough time before the cruise ship left port.

Short, out and back trail along the shores of Mendehall Lake. Wonderful views of the lake, glacier, and surrounding mountains. Trail is relatively flat and well-maintained. Seems to be wheelchair and kid friendly. Ends at Nugget Falls on east end of Mendehall Lake.

A simple walk with beautiful scenery. Don't forget to watch the mountain sides for mountain goats!

Short trail, gravel. Made to be accessible to tourists, but the views are amazing and you end up right at the falls.
