Great access but we went the second weekend in May and did not take our winter boots-oops, this is a great stop but access is limited in May due to snow. We will be going back in the fall for sure!

The Worthington Glacier is visible from the highway and worthwhile a stop on the beautiful drive to Valdez.

Worthington Glacicer is easy to drive to and fun to hike around at. Even in June it is cold and windy, so dress warm and step carefully. Don't forget a camera!

You can climb way up the glacier. It's a little bit of a walk to do so but it's fun. If you are driving to Valdez during the winter, stop in the see the huge amount of snow. They plowed the walkways and you could barely see over them. It has reseeded a lot since I was a kid the... More

We went on a rainy day, so we did not walk on the glacier. But you can get right to it on a nice day.

old travel guide says you can put your hand in it....it has retreated and you can not. Awesome view anyway. Worth the short ride off the road.

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.

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.
