This walk was great with my grandmother, it was beautiful and easy. There are clearly marked paths and a great visited center. Best way to see the glacier if you don't want a 10 mile hike.

We took the hike to Nugget Falls and it was well worth the effort to get there. It is a flat path that leads right to the mouth of the falls so you can take in all of its beauty.
