This is more a review of the campground than the trail, since we actually spent more time walking around the campground loops than the trail. There's a parking lot and access to the trail and a salmon viewing platform, from the Portage Glacier Road just before the campground entrance. Campground is large, lots of nice sites, and the trail goes through it; you can hike the Willawaw Trail, and Trail of Blue Ice from here. Great views of the mountain and glacier behind. Water and toilets. It was late in the season and practically empty, but I can imagine it being pretty busy during the summer months.

I stopped at the fish viewing platform; then took a trail that left from there and generally followed the stream (upstream). Along the way, there are spots where you can get to the edge of the stream and get much closer/clearer views of the salmon than you have at the viewing platform. For me it was intensely interesting.

Williwaw campground is one of our favourites in Alaska. The signage to find the trail is absolutely terrible. This is also in the wrong section of Tripadvisor and should be moved to Portage or the Girdwood area. The trail is wonderful with a large amount of raised timber boardwalk and bridges. It's a shame after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on the trail, they couldn't find $100 for some signage.

We stayed at Williwaw Campground and hiked the Trail of Blue Ice at the back of the campground. It is a very easy, wide, flat trail--very little elevation. You an get to Williwaw Nature Trail from there too. We walked all the way to the Boggs Visitor Center and then also hiked the Byron Glacier Trail. It was misty/overcast the day we went but still a nice hike. We saw moose tracks in the mud-no sign of the moose though! We enjoyed this easy trail. Worth a couple of hours. You can also hike the opposite direction of the visitor center toward Moose Flats (from Williwaw campground). Pretty much the same scenery.

We stopped here a few days ago on our way to homer but there was still too much snow to access the trail. It could be accessed with the right footwear but we were prepared for the beaches in homer and wearing rubber boots. We will try again next month
