Tongass National Forest – West Glacier Trailhead

Covered Walkway Over 6 Private Vault Restroom
Waterless Restroom at Trailhead in National Forest

The United States Forest Service contacted Romtec for the design and supply of a high-use vault restroom. This restroom replaces portable restroom units and serves the trailhead for the West Glacier Trail in the Tongass National Forest of Alaska, only 12 miles from Juneau. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike 3.5 miles of developed trails with the option of using a primitive trail to reach the summit of Mt. McGinnis. The summit offers a great perspective of the Mendenhall Glacier, Mendenhall Lake, and the surrounding area. Alternatively, several other trails that support biking, skiing, and snowshoeing are also available to visitors in the surrounding area. The Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area is a beautiful destination with a rich variety of plant life reflecting the glaciers retreat over the years. This waterless restroom facility offers six single-occupant bathrooms to meet the popularity of this recreation site.
