Bartlett River Trail


2 miles

Elevation Gain

100 ft.



This trail passes along an intertidal lagoon and through a forest of spruce and hemlock before ending at the Bartlett estuary. You may see coyotes, moose, bear, and river otter along the beach. Ducks, geese and other water birds concentrate in the intertidal area during migrations and molting. Salmon run up the river later in the summer that draws in hungry harbor seals. To reach the trailhead, park at the Glacier Bay Lodge/Visitor Center and walk up the road 1/2 mile.
