A Glacier Hike in Kenai Fjords National Park
Having a “free day” between fishing adventures on the Kenai Peninsula, I decided to trek to the Kenai Fjords National Park and hike the Exit Glacier.
At the edge of the Kenai Peninsula lies a land where the ice age lingers. Nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield, Kenai Fjords’ crowning feature.
Most people explore the KFNP by tour boat, but I decided to hike to the Exit Glacier, the only part accessible by road then foot. I hiked to the overlook, about a 2 mile hike and had amazing views, mostly to my self. there are sign posts indicating the retreat of the glacier through thee years, dating back to the 19th century.
