I wanted to take the East Glacier walk (2.5 hours), but the path was icy, so did this one instead. Just about 30-45 mins out and it's pretty spectacular close up. Definitely worth checking out if you have two hours or so on hand in...More

Definitely something you should see while in Juneau. If you're able, it's worth the walk to the falls. Highly recommend!

So glad we decided to walk to the falls, didn't take as long as it indicated and I walk at a leisurely rate. Could have done with more time at the glacier.

The falls and glacier were beautiful, and the hiking trail to get to the falls was well maintained and very doable even by an old fat guy like me, There were fresh bear signs on and along the trail, but there were enough groups on...More

The walk to the falls is scenic. During the summer months you see eagles, and with luck, a bear. You can spot goats on the mountain. The view of the glacier is fantastic.
