This is an amazing trail. Takes you up the left side of Mendenhall Lake to the to the top where you actually can walk under the glacier and into the ice caves (at your own risk). This is a grueling trail though. Lots of wet slate, difficult terrain and the final climb up the ridge to the glacier is slippery, steep and difficult. But the view and the experience of being under the caves was amazing. It took us almost 4 hours round trip and we burned over 2,000 calories. Bring extra socks. We got wet!
