  • Beautiful to see- the main trail to the glacier is fairly easy. The Harding Ice Trail is definitely a lot more difficult but the view is very pretty! Overall, great stop. Would definitely recommend...

  • This place is a must! Great hike upto the glacier. Lots of rocks to climb on. Easy trail at first but more of a moderate climb up by the glacier. Worth the hike
  • Top Notch! Stunning scenery... Exit Glacier is a glacier derived from the Harding Icefield in the Kenai Mountains of Alaska[1] and one of Kenai Fjords National Park's major attractions. It is one of the most accessible valley glaciers in Alaska and is a visible indicator of glacial recession due to climate change.[2][3] Exit Glacier retreated approximately 187 feet (57 m) from 2013 to 2014 and park scientists continue to monitor and record the glacier's accelerating recession.
