Nice hike to beautiful falls!
Oct 2021 • Couples
The Mendenhall Glacier visitor’s center is a good stop before heading out to the falls/glacier. The path out to the falls is a short hike or you can venture off path like the locals do. The falls are amazing and you can get close enough to get wet! The falls are fed by glacier melt far up in the valley above. The Mendenhall Glacier is great viewing from here also.

Easy Hike and Cool Lateral Waterfall.

If you are used to Hawaiian waterfalls that shoot straight down, you'll like the variety of Nugget Falls--a long diagonal slope.

Absolutely breathtaking, upclose view of Nugget Falls after an easy hike on paved trail with lush, rainforest vegetation along the way!

This is an easy 2 mile flat round trip hike with beautiful views all along the way and the falls at the end are a great payoff.

This is an easy, 45 minute hike to a sandy beach with beautiful waterfalls and the glacier in the background! We saw a family bringing beach toys on our way back so it could be a fun but cold beach time too.

Beautiful waterfall!
Jun 2021
We were able to visit Nugget Falls on an evening where it had been raining all day and there was still a light rain falling when we started on the trail. We encountered only one other group on the walk and had the waterfall all to ourselves. It's simply stunning! The walk is an easy one, almost completely flat the whole way. I imagine it would be mostly shady on a sunny day. Wear a rain jacket if you'd like to get closer to the falls as it puts off an impressive mist. Getting closer to the glacier is icing on the cake. We were glad to be able to visit during an uncrowded time. I would imagine during the day when cruise ships visit that the area gets quite crowded, but it was lovely in the evening.

Wear rain gear if you want to get close to the falls. Easy walk for all fitness levels. We saw interesting fungi and mushrooms all along the trail.

Enjoyed this hike

Enjoyed the hike to the falls. I was surprised to see the number of people eating/carrying food given the fact that bears are frequent visitors to the area. We didnt see any bears though.
