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.

Did this hike 2 years ago, it was very easy:)

Make sure to have your poles. Trail was muddy and slippery.

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.

Challenging hike that rewards you with fantastic views and snow toward the end to help you cool off after some hard work. Hiked it dry but can see how mud would make it much more difficult. Lots of dogs on the trail, and if a cruise ship is in town, lots of people coming down from the tram station on the first half of the hike.

Fantastic day, amazing conditions and views for miles!

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.

Epic hike! Loved every minute. Lots of different landscapes and very challenging at points. Well maintained and easy to navigate. Follow the ribbons. June 2018.

Cruise ship visit to Juneau for the day. On the upper end of moderate for an average ability person like myself but worth it especially if you are off a cruise ship and want to get away from the crowd. Some nice views and photo moments. The hike through town to get to the trailhead is great with nice homes and gardens full of flowers. Or do the lower portion along the river which gets to the same trailhead. A $10 purchase pp at the top will get you a free tram ride back down to town. And you can easily manage that with a reward of a local beer at their bar, served by Kathleen the Tlingit princess. Tell her Vidal from Nashville sent you, now an honorary Eagle Shark. Do it!

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.

This trail is amazing! We went on a Monday in late June and the cruise ships from Seattle had just come in, so it was busy around the tram station, but there was almost nobody once we passed the cross on the way to Mount Roberts, and very few people in between the trailhead and the tram station.

From the trailhead it’s 2.5 miles of all uphill to the tram station, and then 3 miles almost all uphill to Mount Roberts. We nearly made it to the top of Mount Roberts, but we couldn’t quite get all the way there because there was too much snow. But the views were totally worth it, especially from the top of Mount Gastineau (the peak right before Roberts). Definitely worth the trek, although lots of hard work!

Easy nature hike

A very easy hike! Took around 2 hrs. Pretty waterfall!!

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

wow I did this hikeon june 19th 2018. it starts off with a mile and a half of following a old road. it gets narrower and narrower and eventually crosses the river where you follow for 3/10s of a mile then look to your right and see obscure little Trail that goes straight up. Find the rope pull yourself up, and climb for the next two and and a half miles in thick old growth forest. you reach a little meadow then climb 2 more miles up into trees and hit the first summit point. it opens up and you can see all around you if it's clear day. the peak is right in front of you and the ridge you follow is on the right. I would recommend you do this hike on a clear day because you can see so much more around you and the views are spectacular. .

It was one of our first hiking experiences in Alaska. We went with a local guide who went a bit faster than we had hoped for but the views and scenery were fabulous. It was a moderate hike with some more difficult areas than others. I’d recommend it for the more physically fit people. There was some climbing that we didn’t know about beforehand but it was well worth the blisters once it was said and done. Our fit bits ranged around 5 miles each way. Some more distance than others. Tons of steps to count.

I love this hike! Up the steps from the end of town, through a little neighborhood to the trail head.

It is a bit muddy at times. Best done with a good pair of hiking shoes but sneakers work.

Easy, kid friendly walk through the woods.

Nice gentle climb, beautiful valley, and
the waterfall and river were fantastic. we only went 2 miles in, but it was just the ticket.

Last two days have been excellent. Saw a yearling black bear today, he was not very observant and i had to make my presence known which can be dangerous.

There is a natural spring before the water tower on the main trail. On a sunny dry day look for the very very small puddle 3/4 the way to the tower.

Muddy! Beautiful forest, quiet and peaceful. Few outlooks , worth the trek

Beautiful views. Go early to avoid crowds
