  • It is a nice glacier and it is visible from the street. Just stop in one of the parking lots along the street. Well worth a stop.  more »
  • It is important to take advantage of opportunities while we can when it comes to the environment. This is one of those times! The glacier is still accessible to view from the roadway! The view is stun...  more »
  • The drive up the side of the mountain is a little hard, the road is full of potholes and narrow in places. But when you get to the top the views are just amazing.  more »

  • In 2004 as recent retirees my wife and I stopped because the glacier was so close to the road. We realized we could launch our kayaks and cross the lake to the glacier. We landed to the side and found we could easily walk onto the glacier. I walked maybe a quarter of a mile up. It was beautiful with water running everywhere. It was much easier walking up than down but made it with only one scary slip. I don't recommend this as glaciers are dangerous but I just had to go up. At that time the glacier face was in the lake with a huge ice overhang. When we returned a week later the overhang had collapsed.
  • As an explorer, here's my spin...You can see this along the highway to Stewart, but you are not allowed to stop on the highway, due to avalanche slopes. This was in April, I wonder if there is a season that is allowable?
  • Beautiful view of the glacier along the highway.
  • What an amazing place, the glacier was so neat to see so close.
  • Amazing view of the glacier. Great spot to take pictures.
