It was a terrific experience going to Alaska this year (2017). At our stop in Juneau the capital city of Alaska we visited The Mendenhall Glacier along with the the Nuggets Falls. It was amazing the size of that blue and white enourmous glacier as an imponent and attractive view. Then just aside of it was the Nuggets Falls ,strong water jets falling giving a complete panorama to our sight. We walked along a trail for about a mile and a half and took us about 30 minutes to get there. We were adviced that might it be Bear activity during our walked to there so we were very concerned. Our visit was in May so at that period of time probably we wouldn't had the chance to encounter one and we did not , hopefully. When got to the falls we felt so overwhelmed about this place because this was something that we wanted to experience some day and finally we did. We where there and enjoy every second of it. Is a wonderfull place, full of nature and peace . It was cold to us because we from the caribbean , especially close to the falls but that didnt matter we got wet a little. We took a lot a pictures and moments to linger in our memories. Great experience there, no doubt , and is a most if you ever visit Alaska,

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

The walk to the Falls is alongside the lake and it is on a flat surface ! It takes less time than indicated on the boards and it is really worth the effort ! It is much bigger than one can perceive from the Visitor Center . Look at the size of the people on the picture !

This is one of the attractions of Alaska. Most of tourist would take their bus excursion and will drive by the call. However, if you are one of those that can stay for a night. it would be a good experience to hike up the trail. Keep in mind that trail is very rough and challenging. Imagine back in the old days when prospectors were hiking up to find gold with all their gears.

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.
