Exit Glacier

Exit Glacier is the only glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park accessible by car, and it's nice to drive right up and see a massive glacier out front.

Before you head outdoors, stop into the Exit Glacier Nature Center to pick up a Junior Ranger activity booklet. Kids will also want to head down to the shallow Resurrection River that flows out of the glacier to play in the water.
Glacier View Trail - Take the one mile (round trip) loop trail for excellent  views of the Exit Glacier.  Strollers are okay on this trail.
Edge of the Glacier Trail - To get really close to the Exit Glacier, take the 1.2 mile trail that to east side of the glacier. The first half mile is largely level, then it goes up over the rocks to the glacier, even younger kids will find the trail worth the effort to see the glacier at close range.
