There is a small trail here that you can access the glacier and literally touch them!

I didnt think this was a great attraction. Its just ok. If you already seen and went close to glacier then this is nothing different or mind blowing. Yes stop on your way in or out of Valdez to see it. Dont drive specially for this.

It was so neat to be able to walk out on the Glacier. Knowing it was over 2000 years was beyond anything one could imagine. Just breath taking.

Easy to get to but sad to think how fast all of these glaciers are melting after having been here for so long.

Short walk and there you have this glacier and a water fall. There's a special structure there: the glacier on one hand touching the rocks on the other hand and having the waterfall in between them. Great thing.

please stop at this glacier and prepare enough time to hiking to the top of the glacier. You can touch the glacier and go upper place.

this glacier is worth a stop if you are traveling on the richardson highway. There is a nice pull out and you can walk up to it.

Similar to the Columbia Icefields in Jasper Park (Alberta, Canada), this attraction is way less visited and more approachable. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Alaska, to be able to hike up and experience a glacier first hand. Memorable!

This is one of the most accessible glaciers in Alaska. It took about 30 minutes short hike to touch the glacier. We went in a sunny summer afternoon and both adults and kids enjoyed the visit. It costs nothing to visit the beautiful park as there is even no entrance fee.
