Get as close to the glacier as you can by taking the Nugget Trail to the waterfall. On hot days, the cold waterfall mist is wonderful after a brisk hike. Try to find a tour that gives you time to go to the falls, see the glacier, and take in the visitors center. Our 1.25 hour of time was not quite enough.
