Mendenhall GlacierAttractions » Parks & NatureEnd of Glacier Spur Road, 99801View siteThe Mendenhall Glacier is located in the southeastern portion of the state of Alaska several miles from the downtown of Alaska's state capital, Juneau. The glacier is about 12 miles long and has retreated nearly 2,000 feet since it first began to be monitored by the Juneau Icefield Research Program in 1942. Because the Mendenhall Glacier has a negative glacier mass balance, it is expected to continue to recede in the future. The Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center is operated by the United States Forest Service and offers interpretative programs for both children and adults. Glacier visitors can observe calving glaciers, observe various exhibits and explore trails in the vicinity of the glacier. Children's nature programs are also common. Through the months of May-Sept., a $3 admission fee is required to gain entrance to the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor's Center, although activities outside of the center are free.
