The exit glacier is visible while driving on the roads, but the view after the hike is really far more beautiful. There are a few trail options and you can choose depending on the time you wish to spend. We drove to the glacier in...More

A short distance from Seward is the trailhead for Exit Glacier. There are visible signs providing good directions. There is a parking lot and a small ranger station/visitor center at the trailhead. The hike is relatively easy with slight elevation gain. There are signs along...More

This is a nice easy trail and close access to a glacier. The marking points showing glacial locations at different years is neat and shows the huge change very easily. Nice place to visit to have a nice day with beautiful views of a glacier

This was a great experience. The hike isn't too bad but it can be a little strenuous at times. Walking on the glacier was unbelievable! The guides were knowledgeable but a little lacking in personality, however not enough to take away from the experience. A...More

The trail to the glacier through the park was not too difficult, but there were places where it could have been made easier. Its sad to see the markers where the toe of the glacier had been years ago, its a sad but awesome feeling....More

Exit Glacier is well worth the visit! It is a fun hike with great views of the forest, trees, fauna, and streams. The hike is relatively moderate. The glacier itself is beautiful especially the blue hues.

No need to make arrangements. First come, first serve. We had about 15 in our group. Would highly recommend the ranger tour if you want to learn about the history of the glacier and the ice field. Ranger Ann, a retired... More
