This five-mile round-trip hike is designed to show off the unique faces of the mighty Mendenhall Glacier.Led by a naturalist guide, the tour begins with an introduction to Juneau and a narrated drive out to the trailhead. Here, you will pause to shoot glacial landscapes and floating icebergs. Beginning your hike, you will get several vantages of the glacier as you work your way up a forested path to the spur trail. As you reach the peak(an elevation gain of 300 feet)—your efforts will be rewarded as the glacier spans out magnificently below.
