This is a great drive. While working with Anchorage Telephone Utility [now Alaska Communications since 1999], I was able to drive down the Seward Hwy from Anchorage to Girdwood and take the tram to the top of Mt. Alyeska where you can see seven glaciers. It was an awesome trip and next time will plan to go down Portage Glacier Road to the glacier, or continue all the way to Seward. The road was in good shape when I went and the sights along the Chugach Mtns and Turnagain Arm are truly big Alaska, the mountains go on forever and rise up right off the road. Amazing is all you can say.

If you have the time there is a lot do do on this scenic drive. Exit Glacier is definitely a highlight. A drive through the tunnel to Whittier is another. Amazing views

Amazing drive from Glennallen to Valdez. The Worthington Glacier is definitely a worthwhile stop. Bridle Veil and Horsetail falls is another. The road travels through beautiful mountain ranges and river valleys

Love this trail for a quick walk! We only had about an hour to walk so it was perfect! We saw the salmon and lots of ducks! It was perfect for our toddler!

Easy trail to get right to Nugget Falls with great views of Mendenhall Glacier and the mountains!

Great trail, well used. Wide, flat, smooth.

16 Aug 2018 - Flat and well maintained trail. Perfect trail for walking the pups, great scenery, lots of pollen flying from the fireweed, smooth trail to run, and pretty awesome to watch the planes depart/arrive! Saw a couple people on bikes as well, it’s a pretty wide trail to easily share.

Very nice boardwalk, scenic view. Many birds, including bald eagle. Salmon in small stream. Some moose and bear sightings.

Great way to see the glacier. Lots of great spots for photos, views of the glacier and waterfall, and (sadly) lots of evidence of the glacier receding from the rocks on the road. Heavily trafficked to final viewing sandbar.

Great trail for getting up close to Nugget Falls and the Mendenhall Glacier. Easy one mile stroll with a few easy up and downs. Probably doable with a stroller or wheelchair.

Dog and kid friendly. One of the most beautiful platform decks that I’ve ever been too. My 3-year old daughter and I can’t stop returning. Check out the hollow tree along the route as it also makes for a great picture. We did see a black bear along the trail but it didn’t mind our presence.

This trail is definitely easy, and very busy. It’s very popular with cruise shippers and such an easy walk to beautiful falls, it’s not hard to see why so many enjoy it. We went on a very rainy day last week and not many people were there, but the day before we hiked the glacier and could see the falls from the glacier and it was super busy in the nice weather.

I went at 7 am before the tourist buses arrived and only saw a few other people. Breathtaking and peaceful. Easy walk. Hard to call this a hike. It’s a flat, mostly paved trail. You could take strollers or walkers. It’s easy.

Easy hike! Took around an 1hr. Very nice views

Super chill, fun to watch animals, and just relax.

Nice views. Very pleasant easy walk. Took the side trail to see some of the changes the earthquake caused. That trail was easy to get a little lost on.

Beautiful views. Go early to avoid crowds
