Getting Around the Park
In summer, Exit Glacier can be reached by car on a gravel road (approximately 9 miles), and a short trail. Exit Glacier is the only portion of the park accessible by trail. A gravel road at mile 3.7 of the Seward Highway leads 9 miles to the Exit Glacier Ranger Station. An easy 1/2 mile walk will take you to the glacier's terminus. The first 1/4 mile of this trail is completely accessible. A steeper trail continues across moraines and
bedrock. Visitors may return to the Ranger Station via a nature trail.
The Harding Icefield can be reached by air or trail. Air and boat charters provide access to the fjords.
