Take a personal tour of the Exit Glacier area with former Chief Interpretive Park Ranger for this area, Doug Capra. Doug takes you through the only place in Kenai Fjords National Park where you can see the glacial ice and its dynamics up close on foot. He highlights key points of interest on the trails that pass through the forest, near the outwash plain, and at overlooks above the glacier. You’ll learn things about glacial landscapes, plant succession, and the area’s animals. Kenai Fjords became a national park to protect its glaciers and fjords—see both through the eyes of this park expert!
Points of Interest
Start your tour of this mammoth glacier here. You won’t find restrooms or water on the trail, so stop in here before heading out. Be ready to see wildlife along the trail, like bears and moose. And remember, if you see a bear, don’t surprise it, just let it go on its way.
