The Worthington Glacier is a 5,774-acre (2,337 ha) valley glacier located adjacent to Thompson Pass in the southeastern mainland section of the U.S. state of Alaska. Located on the Richardson Highway at milepost 28.7 mi (46 km) east of Valdez, it was listed as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. The Worthington Glacier State Recreation Site, a 113-acre (0.46 km2) roadside park operated by the state of Alaska, offers a view of the glacier, and it is acclaimed as one of the remaining U.S. glaciers that is accessible by paved highway. Like most of Alaska's glaciers, this glacier has been steadily retreating for the last 150 years, but not as dramatically as many others.Using our custom trip planner, Valdez attractions like Worthington Glacier can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Worthington Glacier reviews
This is a state park based on the Worthington Glacier. One can almost "drive-up" to the glacier. There are restrooms and a small gift store / visitors center. more »
이년전에는 존재했던 작은 동굴이 녹아서 강력한 폭포가 되어버렸다. 아쉽다.
