Exit Glacier 2.2 miles EASY
The Exit Glacier hike is the perfect way to spend quality time with family and friends. The experience actually starts miles away from the trailhead! Along the way, you will notice date signs on Exit Glacier Road. These dates indicate the location of the Glacier at specific times in history, showing the recession over the years. I love to stop by the Ranger station on my way to the trail to check on current conditions, animal sightings, and take a look at the topographic map of the area Ice Fields. The first part of the trail (river trail) is ADA accessible and great for all physical ability levels. To get to the glacier itself, a little more effort and activity is required. The winding trail has a little incline but has nice spots to rest along the way. Don't stop short because the view and experience of the Glacier is well worth the trek to the roped section at the end. Along with the great view, the cool wind flowing off the ice offers a refreshing relief on warm days!
