HARDING ICEFIELD HIKE

ASCEND INTO THE LAST ICE AGE

This trek climbs 3000 feet alongside Exit Glacier as it passes through several climatic zones. Be on the look out for mountain goats, black bear, and marmots--- they are common sightings up here.

The trail ends overlooking the massive 700 square mile Harding Icefield, which is a leftover of the last major Ice Age. Covering approximately 700 square miles, and at a maximum depth of roughly 4000ft,  the Harding Icefield is the largest ice field entirely within the United States. Looking over a corner of the ice field is a humbling experience, one that leaves behind a sense of magnitude and awe that stays with visitors for a long time after they leave Alaska.
