Alaska is now on top of my list for hiking when it comes to scenery! The hike was a casual/moderate uphill for beginners which rewards you of the spectacular view of the Mendenhall glacier. Many waterfalls are on this trail. This trail is a total photo op! We only did the East Glacier Loop trail which will take you two hours (with a lot of picture taking breaks). I will definitely come back and do the other trails!
