Alaska Off The Beaten Path: 110 reviews and 187 photos
One of my favourite places on the Kenai Peninsula. You can see this magical word if you take the quite difficult harding icefield trail from the exit glacir visitor centre that climbs 3,000 feet and takes up to 6-8 hours. The top of the trail may be covered in snow. You need lots of water and warm clothing.
Because there are no portable potties, you’ll have to be careful with human waste, packing it out. You’ll have to watch out for black bears in the lower and grizzlies in the higher areas. It was a fortune that i've seen both. Do not go on the glacial ice unless you're an experienced climber (permits in the visitor centre).
The icefield spawns up to 40 glaciers, and of all types: hanging, tidwater, valley to name a few. Some of the more notable glaciers include the Tustumena Glacier, Exit Glacier, and McCarthy Glacier.
