  • Worthington Glacier was so much fun! We visited a few weeks ago & was able to go touch the glacier. Highly recommend stopping off if you are passing through.

  • A perfect stop on the way from Anchorage to Valdeze. The maintained trail is very short, so if you want a closer glimpse of the glacier, you need to be a bit adventurous and make your way over the rocks and rubble yourself. Make smart choices, and you can get right up to the glacier. The river runs right out of the glacier to the beautiful lake below. It is picturesque whether you hike to the glacier, or enjoy the view from the overlook.
  • The Worthington Glacier is melting fast! We saw this ten years apart standing close to the glacier at very different locations. This time there were lots of waterfalls crashing down. It is beautiful.
