Absolutely gorgeous view of the waterfall. Only a 2-mile total “hike,” which isn’t really a hike so much as it is a walk on a nice, mostly flat, paved path. It was a very busy day so lots of folks out and about. Once down at the falls, there is a nice view of the glacier as well. The spray from the falls is so cold and refreshing. Really cool and memorable experience. Free!

This hike is great for hikers of all levels. A mostly-flat trail through the forest leads to a stunning waterfall that you can literally walk up to and touch. It also provides great views of the Mendenhall Glacier within a safe distance. Be aware of bears as they are more active during certain seasons.

It's right at the Mendenhall glacier, so you can see it at the same time. A slightly longer hike will get you to the base and give you a different angle view of the Mendenhall.

Gorgeous falls and hike. Easy walk. Highly recommend. You can see the glacier and the glacial lake at the falls. Nice wooded walk.

We walked as far as possible for being a bit tired, but found it quite easy to see the falls up close without touching it.

This is very close to Juneau area. Very good access both hiking and parking. Easy access to glacier and hiking trails. Nugget falls is a must do. Easy flat hike to get right up to the glacier and falls. We went in April and there was still some ice and snow on the trail. We didn't have spikes or crampons but was easily done with hiking boots. Absolutely amazing views and you can literally walk right up to the falls. Great views even if you don't hike. The visitors center was closed and opens end of May. Parking lot is a great, dark place to view the Northern Lights. We saw a little of the lights at around midnight.

The Mendenhall Glacier visitor’s center is a good stop before heading out to the falls/glacier. The path out to the falls is a short hike or you can venture off path like the locals do. The falls are amazing and you can get close enough to get wet! The falls are fed by glacier melt far up in the valley above. The Mendenhall Glacier is great viewing from here also.

If you are used to Hawaiian waterfalls that shoot straight down, you'll like the variety of Nugget Falls--a long diagonal slope.

Absolutely breathtaking, upclose view of Nugget Falls after an easy hike on paved trail with lush, rainforest vegetation along the way!
