“A cool summer view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Easy access - well, once you are there! It was amazing how cool it was near the glacier, and we were able to walk out and see the till - and slide on it if we so chose! No bathrooms - the site is "managed" by the state but really you're on your own here!

“Worth the stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

On your way to Valdez stop and take a break at the Worthington Glacier. With little effort you can get some fairly close shots and if you are really into it you can walk up and get close and personal.
Worth the few minutes it takes and gives you more time out in Alaska. There are restrooms but beware they needed attention when we were there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is a spectacular glacier just off the highway. A little walking and a great up-close vier. Don't miss it.

“Beautiful glacier!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Worthington is very easy to access. Right off the highway, park and then you can walk past the railings and right up to the glacier. You can get beautiful photos with typical blue ice.

“Accessible Glacier for a Quick Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The Worthington Glacier was easily accessible from the parking lot. It would be an easy visit for families. The bugs were pretty gross there so bring bug spray. The view is pretty and it was a great introduction to glacier viewing if you do more traveling in AK.
