Mendenhall Glacier was part of our Juneau excursion, and we were not disappointed. We only wish we had had more time here. The walk to the glacier and falls was beautiful. When we arrived at the glacier and falls, we were amazed at their size and beauty. We would definitely return here!

A wonderful place to see the glacier and all the nature surrounding . Wish we had more time to explore here. But the view is incredible . And we were entertained by the local family of black bears as well !

This amazing glacier lends notice to all that there is something bigger than you. The walk to the base of the glacier is filled with a narrow path walking between rows of tall bushes, never knowing when a bear may come through, as is evidenced by the "Beware of bears sign" at the path entrance. When you get through the walk to the rocky beach and sidle up to the bottom of the falls, you will pale in comparison to the enormous water flow on that beach. The glacier is white, pale blue and deep blue and worth the time to kayak to if able. Peaceful! Enormous! Perspective!

Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget Falls is an absolute must-do and it was just beautiful. I would like to share how we got to the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center from the cruise port as we arrived on a cruise ship which was docked directly across from the Mt. Roberts Tramway. The choice was to either take one of the expensive shuttle buses that departs by the Tramway ($49 pp) or take a public bus which required a little more time/walking for only $4 roundtrip pp. I’m glad we choose the public bus route as it was easy peasy and inexpensive. The walk from the cruise port to the Downtown Transit Center (DTC) was less than 10 minutes where we caught bus# 3 at 8:05 am and arrived at the Glacier Stop-439 at 8:55 am. From here we walked the 1.5 mile and arrived at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center by 9:25 am. As a side note, I had read a very touching book, A Wolf Called Romeo, about a friendly wolf who had lived in this area. On the trail to Nugget Falls you will find a memorial plaque of Romeo and the wolf exhibit with Romeo’s recorded howls at the Mendenhall Visitor Center.
