Mendenhall Glacier Shelter – Juneau AK

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps built many shelters and cabins in Alaska during the 1930s. The Mendenhall Glacier shelter is located at the intersection of the Trail of Time and the East Glacier Trail. The Forest Service visitor brochure for the Mendenhall Glacier notes that, “used by early visitors, this shelter is located next to the old footpath to the glacier, which includes part of the path you are hiking today. At that time, it was just a three minute walk to the toe of the glacier from here!”
