Mendenhall Campground

The trail leaves from the Skaters Cabin parking lot (Skater’s Cabin Road, Juneau, AK 99801). The terrain is generally flat, with a full loop (skiing all sections) ~3 km. Shorter loops can be skied by cutting out various sections. Skiers with dogs should keep them under control and clean up after them. There is an outhouse next to Skaters Cabin, as well as one or two outhouses open out on the trail (the Forest Service typically marks which ones remain open). Parking is in front of Skaters Cabin, with overflow parking down by the Tolch Rock and West Glacier Trailheads (~.25 and .5 kilometers, respectivelly, continuing to the end of the road). A connector trail back to the Campground parallels the road for ~.5 km. Juneau, AK 99801.

The Campground is in excellent condition both skate and classic.

Shaved ice can be nice!

The skate lane is shaved nicely for your record fast scate time. Classic track is icy so take care.
