Just "across the street" from the Kennicott Glacier Lodge, this glacier is located in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Kennicott Glacier has been receding for years, but it still proves to be a magnificent sight. The glacier stretches from Mount Blackburn to its terminus at the Kennicott River.
The trip from McCarthy to the Toe of the Kennicott Glacier is only 1.5 miles. On a clear day you can get views of Mt. Blackburn, Mt. Rime, Kennicott Glacier and more. Check for directions to the Toe of Kennicott Glacier at the McCarthy Museum.
