well maitained trail, saw several bikers using it as well. Trail ends a a river that does not offer much view of the galcier. Better veiw is just before the end of trail. There is way to get to the glacier, but we did not have time to make it to tgr glacier.

Needed a little climb to prepare for Mount Roberts so this was close and easy to access. Pleasantly surprised that there were boardwalks over a lot of the boggy area. Didn't find the "top" of trail but enjoyed the sights in between. Even saw a yearling? black bear!

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.

Nice spot for good views of Mendenhall Lake, The Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget Falls. Very easy, short walk from visitor center.

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.

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.

This trail was very easy, beautiful walking through a forest on old wooden planks over the old mining grade. It was well-maintained and flat the whole way. We went in the evening right after doing the difficult 12 mile Mount Roberts trail and it was a great cool-down.

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

Easy, kid friendly walk through the woods.

Beautiful views. Go early to avoid crowds

Nice hike to view a waterfall. Well maintained trail. Actually saw a family pushing a wheelchair on the trail.

Love to take my dogs here and enjoy the views

OK for a short hike (so many other more beautiful trails). Lightly trafficked; we lost the trail a few times; needs more ribbons (but you really can't get lost with the water always visible). Be sure to do both Glacier Trails!

Just did this trail last week, 4/14/18. Great trail but we should have had our boots on. Once past the cabin the trail was super wet. Will do this trail again this summer.

Easy hike. Breathtaking scenery!

Easy, Gorgeous after first big snow of the season!

Beautiful easy hike. Great views of Mendenhall Glacier. The waterfall is huge and you can get up close to it. There is also a nice visitor center at the head of the trail. I know this trail can be crazy busy. We hit it just right in the middle of September and hiked it before the cruise ship came into port. We saw maybe a total of ten people the whole time. Worth the hike, just plan around the cruise ship schedule so it's not to crowded.

Easy trail with nice views of Nugget Falls and Mendenhall Glacier. Only downside is the large number of other people on the trail.

Cool Trail

Great trail to walk your dogs where they can run free. Much less congested than the airport dike trail.

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.
