Herbert Glacier near Juneau, Alaska

The capital of Alaska, Juneau, is a beautiful small city set on a salt water channel and surrounded by magnificent alpine peaks. It’s is a nature lovers paradise, with great shops, restaurants, and the only glacier, the Mendenhall, within the municipal limits of any city.
The Herbert Glacier is about a 5 hour round trip by foot (about half the time by bike) along  the obviously named Herbert glacier trail. The trail starts around 40 km or 25 miles from Juneau, .The glacier is part of the Juneau Icefield, which contains the the glaciers Eagle,Taku and the famous impressive previously, mentioned Mendenhall.
It has the appearance of being in the middle of nowhere and it is relatively speaking. But this is Alaska and that means adventurers, locals and tourists are everywhere during it’s short summer. Well worth the effort to visit!
