Exit Glacier

Exit Glacier is the most accessible park area. A gravel road at mile 3.7 of the Seward Highway leads 9 miles to the Exit Glacier Ranger Station. The area offers exhibits on the glacier and Harding Icefield, interpretive programs, and hikes. Rangers provide information daily in the summer. An easy 1/2 mile walk will take you to the glacier's terminus: the first 1/4 mile is fully accessible. A steeper trail continues across moraines and bedrock. You may return to the ranger station by a nature trail. Exit Glacier descends 2,500 feet over its nearly 3 mile length. The 3 mile Harding Icefield trail, which follows the glacier's flank to an overlook of the icefield, is day-use only: overnight backpacking is prohibited.

Winter travel to Exit Glacier and the cabin is by cross-country ski, snowmobile, dogsled, or snowshoe. Scenic flights give views of the vast Harding Icefield. Landings can be arranged for day skiing or expeditions.
