went on trail not realizing you have to be part mountain goat to finish it. There were a lot of dangerous spots and in my opinion it's not worth the effort

It was a beautiful fairly short hike that involved a nice wide wooden path throughout most of the way. The first section before getting on the bridge is a bit rough. Overall it was a great stroll and made for some good pictures.

Really great trail, easy with pretty waterfall

Great day on the trail. 4 hours up for us. Just keep your eye out for the flagging at the end of West Glacier to navigate the scrubby alders.

Beautiful view! The winds where so powerful the day we where there it was a unique experience.

Great trail. Pretty intense at parts, deep incline and rocky. Bring water, snacks and shoes with a decent grid. Also, be aware that it is pretty cool considering the wind and altitude. Incredible views. Highly recommend.

Arrived in town on a cruise so our timing was critical. Walked to the trailhead and started up an a clear day. Understand comments about mud none for us by it hadn't rained for a few days and it was still damp. After passing the tram station we were soon above the tree line and views kept getting better all the way to Gastineau Peak. Stopped there as it was relayed to us that though the ship leaving the harbor may be a beautiful site it is one you don't want to experience.
A great hike for those who are sure footed and not afraid ofheights

this is a beautiful beautiful area. you follow this granite creek up to some beautiful waterfalls and if you're brave enough swimming holes. the trail keeps going after the big waterfall at the end of the Maintained Trail". the trail goes up and around the backside of Mt Juneau. This is a long and strenuous hike, the ridgeline is pretty easy to follow and marked very well with karen's. There are some beautiful glacier lakes.

note- the trailhead to decend down Mt Juneau is that the white building structure looking down into the canyon. I went back and forth to the front of Mt Juneau to the back looking for the trailhead down it. I could not find it and spent the night up there and found it in the morning.

This trail absolutely stunning, everything from marshes to following rivers, to deep old growth forest, too high above tree line ridges. I did not finish it, and kept going past the mileage on this app. After you pass the abandoned cabin you keep going up as marked by flags. I would like to go back and see where exactly ends. I would say the trail to the abandoned cabin is at least 8 miles.

This a great hiking trail. It’s very steep and it could be challenging at times, but oh my once you get to the top the views are beyond amazing! It is breathtaking! Very rewarding

A great walk on a sunny day.

pretty trail goes between following the creek and beautiful meadows. the description for the trail as being "difficult"I would argue is not applicable. The bridges and eroded parts of the trail have been restored. The trail is longer than originally posted on this app. From the gun range (where you park) to the end of the road maybe .3 of a mile. About 2 miles of wide (atv width) along the river. About 6.5 miles single track trail after that. it is not clear where Montana Creek Trail ends and Winfall Lake trail starts no signage of any kind. Definitely check out Winfall Lake it's pretty awesome. There's also cabin that is open to the public which is awesome to check out. I did half an hour of canoeing (the cabin had a canoe) and went on to Herbert glacier and back. I did a 20+ mile day. again the difficult rating no longer applys since the trail been restored. It's very flat compared to most trails around. it can get slippery so I would recommend going on a sunny day.

Not a difficult trail at all.. good day hike.

Beautiful trail - for a mountain summit it is not ridiculously strenuous. The view is stunning and so worth the climb. Hot on a clear day because the last half is mostly exposed. Loved it!

Great hike! Done it a few times. Caves aren’t always there though, so a little disappointing if you do the whole hike and don’t get that reward.

the trail itself is definitely not difficult. the whole time basically from the cutoff of Sprawling Meadows Trail you are confined to "board walking" the whole Trail is covered in marshes and muskegs. the trail has a slight incline throughout but nothing difficult. The cabin is beautiful has a great lookout to the water on a clear day. didn't see any wildlife but lots of markings. I only gave it to stars because you're walking on boards the whole time.

Beautiful views bring sandals your feel will get wet. There is no "your done here" clear end. You will hit medow, forest, medow, forest and eventually end up in a beautiful medow on the top. You lose the trail in the medow but can follow the pink and orange flags in tree branches then finally lose them . it's breathtaking at the top(if its clear) and worth the wet muddy feet.

My wife and I did this trail last June while on a Disney Alaskan Cruise. The trail is moderate and the views are absolutely stunning!!! Looking out over the valley and glacier everyone in our group was completely silent, just taking it all in.

Went up on a beautiful day in late August. Great views of the channel, downtown Juneau, and various peaks and valleys. Might be a good idea to take the tram up/ down to skip what would be the muddiest part of the trail if it has rained recently. Lots of marmots and ptarmigans. Also saw a northern harrier chasing a raven. Legs were a little sore the next day, but worth it!

Great trail and easy for kids

This is an awesome Trail. It doesn't get too close to the glacier, but you do have some nice glacier views. It does go through some very pretty temperate rainforest. We saw some spawning Sockeye salmon in the creek, and also a family of 4 bears right off the trail.

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

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

Was on my way to disc golf when I decided to do this trail instead. Only had running shoes with me haha, def bring boots as it tends to get pretty muddy at parts. Loved this trail, I was the only one out there today and it was so peaceful. If you don’t plan on camping at near the top I’d recommend starting earlier than later. I started about 2pm and by the time I’d gotten back to following the creek it was rather evident the bears were out as there were multiple fresh piles on the trail haha, also the road to the trailhead closes at 9pm so def be down before then or your car will get booted apparently. First 2 miles are simple and flat, very beautiful along the creek. The rest of the way is up and I mean up. Felt like there was about 2500 hundred feet of gain in around the next 2 miles. Views are worth it and there are some great soft spots to just lay around up near the top :)

views can't be beat

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.
