The Mendenhall Visitors Center does a great job of introducing you to the Mendenhall Glacier. The glacier has receded quite a bit since the center was built, but they provide telescopes for viewing from the center. The Nugget Falls.trail was fantastic - take the beach...More

We took a cab out and he gave us his number to come get us when done. About 20 minutes out of town. Really worth the trip. The walk out to the glacier and falls definitely doable - well paved. Just crowded! Very nice visitor...More
Beautiful waterfall and Glaciers. Did not take the long trail to the waterfalls, but could still see it from the scenic trail. Visitor center also has a great view of the glacier. If you have the time, take this tour
We have visited twice, once 9 years ago. The glacier continues to recede. We also went to the Mendenhall gardens which were very interesting. They are part of the rain forest.
It's fun getting here and even more fun when you show up to find the beauty it has to show you. I would highly recommend this trip.
