West glacier trail to the ice cave in Juneau Alaska, tips?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my upcoming trip is to hike from West Glacier trail down to the ice caves in Mendenhall glacier. There are very limited info about this trip since the path after the west glacier trail is not an official trail (I think west glacier spur trail connect the west glacier trail to the ice cave), so I'm wondering if anybody has done it or got some tips to offer? I got crampons for walking on slippery rocks, and waterproof jacket, pants, and backpack, any other gear advice? Thanks in advance guys.

When you travel in Alaska, make sure you visit plenty of places that are not talked about and have no names. 

That is how you experience the bush and get away from the tourists.

Hi Ppine, agreed! I took the trip last year, I was completely alone on the way to the glacier cave, which was AMAZING:) I also posted trip report, you can see some pictures I took on the trip, definitely want to go back to AK, next time will be Denali.
