Enjoyed a sunny fall day taking this easy trail about a mile long and back to a narrow, scenic rocky valley. About a dozen other folks were there on a Thursday afternoon, so it probably gets a lot of people in there on the weekends
First mile is on easy trail and then if you want to continue it is rock climbing. It is well worth the adventure off the beaten path to continue and see the ice caves ahead and enjoy the glacier on the mountain that has receded....More
Even on a rainy day, this easy going stroll to a beautiful glacier valley is well worth it. I got soaked to the bones but a short trip back to Girdwood for a tasty treat of yummy bread pudding at Jack Sprats warmed my soul....More

When in Alaska always be on the lookout for bears! We hiked the Eagle River area also and a Ranger was hiking out. She said nobody had seen any bears or moose or even any fresh sign in a few days. We weren’t on the trail 20 minutes and we had a close encounter with an adult black bear and later saw sign. So ALWAYS be prepared! Thankfully the bear was 30-40 ish yards away up a hill so we just gave it more space and it walked away.
