My first trip to Exit Glacier was solo, so I did what I felt comfortable with as a solo traveler. The Lower Trail was easy and I felt safe traveling alone. The following day I hiked part way up the Harding Icefield trail with my...More

It's an easy walk from the parking lot (with bathrooms) to get to a viewpoint, but a longer hike to get close up. It's very sad to see how the glacier has been receding over the years - there are markers at the side of...More

As you drive into Exit Glaciers there are signs with the year marked to depict where Exit Glacier used to be. Needless to say, it has receded tremendously over the years. I recommend that you hike up to at least the sign that says "2010."...More

You need to drive 15 miles NW of Seward to get to Exit Glacier and the trails. The road dead ends there. There is no way of knowing how many people will be there at any given time..rainy days will have less.
