A trail leading to views of a glacial lake, waterfalls, and a glacier, with options to hike beyond maintained trail to gain intimate views of the glacial ice. The West Glacier hike follows the west side of Mendenhall Lake and Mendenhall Glacier, mainly through brushy woods of alder and cottonwood, to several viewpoints above the valley. Last is best in this case: From the final overlook above the glacier, you get to look into the hall of the mountain king. This is a beauty of an area, but be prepared for frequent helicopter noise, as the glacier is a prime destination for flight-seeing tours.
