FACILITIES, PROGRAMS & ACTIVITIES
The Exit Glacier Ranger Station provides a great deal of information for the visitor. Regularly scheduled tours, guided walks and educational programs are conducted by park rangers at major sites during the visitor season. Interpretive talks, exhibits, and a slide program are provided at the Exit Glacier Ranger Station. Restrooms are located in the area and are wheelchair accessible as is the first 1/4 mile of the trail leading to the glacier.
Exit Glacier has 10 walk-in summer camping sites. No RV or trailer camping is available in the park. However, Seward has a full compliment of RV and camping facilities located throughout the area just minutes from the glacier.
Trails & Hiking
An easy 1/2 mile walk will take you to the glacier's terminus. The first 1/4 mile of this trail is completely accessible and is paved for wheelchair access. A bit steeper trail continues across moraines and bedrock to the face of the glacier. Visitors may return to the Ranger Station via a nature trail.
The 3-mile Harding Icefield Trail, which follows the glacier's flank to an overlook of the icefield, is for day use only. Overnight backpacking is prohibited. Check the bulletin boards for current trail conditions.
The glacier is active and calving - falling ice is dangerous. The area beyond the warning signs is strictly off limits. Please stay off the ice!
