Visit the Creek when at the Glacier
Sep. 2019
The Creek, time of year depending may be full of salmon. We visited in September and they were there. The trails at Mendenhall are very well kept. You can take the trail to the Creek or just go to the end of the parking lot. :)

Salmon Viewing Made Easy
Aug. 2019
Walk along the Creek on a boardwalk elevated and fenced for easy close viewing of salmon spawning. Accessible from close parking areas for all abilities. Near Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

Mama bear and her 2 cubs
Aug. 2018 • Couples
After our observation of Mendenhall and Nugget Falls, we took the boardwalk not knowing where it led to or what it was even for. A small portion of it was open as the ranger said there are 2 female bears and their cubs living around this area. There was a small stream and near it were salmon. Along came a Mama Bear (all black) and her cubs, while the cinnamon bear laid up under some trees higher up the hill.

What a thrill!
Sep. 2018 • Friends
I love wildlife. I live in Alberta, so it's no stranger to me. BUT, I've never seen wildlife from a bird's view! It was amazing to stand on the board walk and watch Niki (?) and her twin cubs hunting, swimming and roaming and then walk right under us. Twice! What an amazing sighting!

Saw a cinnamon mom and two cubs
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We were so very fortunate to see a cinnamon colored black bear and her cubs that like to stay in this area. The mother bear was racing back and forth below us trying to catch the silver salmon that had come to spawn in the creek. The water was just a little too deep for her to be successful. The walkways give you a great sense of security, as the bears, even though close, are down below you. Even without the bears, the area is fascinating. We watched salmon building their nests by fanning their tails and what appeared to be couples pairing off. The visitors center has an underwater fish cam in this area and you can see the spawning salmon along with last years hatchlings.

We saw bears!!!
Aug. 2018
A mum and cub walked right underneath the bridge we were standing on, it was fantastic to see them. If you are in the area this trip is well worth doing, it is only a short, easy walk and you also get to see the glacier and a beautiful forest. Highly recommend it.

Went to the raised boardwalk to observe bears; shortly after sunset (August, 9:45 pm) was able to see two black bears which crossed right under where we were standing....so exciting!!

Haven’t seen a bear but will keep trying!
Jul. 2018 • Friends
We just learned that the bears come in the evening to feed on the salmon and can be seen freely from the boardwalk! Unfortunately, it was a very warm day and the bears apparently come in later evening. But we’ll keep trying. Even without the bears it’s a lovely trail for a gentle walk.
