“it's so cool, it's ice cold!”
The Exit Glacier area is the only part of the park accessible by road. Here you can explore the trails, walk very close to an active glacier, or take a ranger-led walk. It is a place where you can witness up close how glaciers re-shape a landscape and learn how plant life reclaims the barren rocky land exposed by a glacier's retreat.
The hike to Exit Glacier and Harding Ice Field is out of this world. What a great hike, straight up all the way, and the experience is amazing. Check out more details here on my blog
There are not that many glaciers that you can just walk right up to. This is a phenomenal experience. Come prepared with some water and know what routes are available. There is a pretty easy walk up to the glacier, but for just a few more miles up, you can go all the way to the edge of the Harding Ice Field. We got there too late in the day to complete that loop (which we TOTALLY regret). If you look for a little side path in the wash-out basin you can climb around the side if the water is low and make it to the terminus of the glacier. Totally awesome.
