Your guide will discuss safety and the hike and ice hiking details and will make sure that you are prepared with adequate clothing and hiking boots for this adventure before loading up and driving down the road to the Nature Center parking area near the Harding Ice Field trail head.
We sometimes call the upper trail the Harding Ice field Trail with over 3000 ft of elevation gain from trail head to top!
The upper trail that ascends along the glacier up into the alpine meadows above the tree line.
This hike should be only attempted by hikers in good physical condition and we also advise your to bring rain gear, and wear non cotton attire (synthetic type hiking clothing recommended), wool socks with hiking boots (no sandals), and you may even on sunny days consider sun block and sun glasses. This trip is a hike up into upper elevations and you may encounter various conditions such as wind at higher altitudes and also cooler temps as you gain elevation. Wearing a windbreaker with hood and having light synthetic layering that can be added or removed is advisable.
We provide guide, trekking poles, lunch, water bottle, snacks, and pickup to and from your Seward lodging. Trail is subject to closure due inclement weather or wildlife issues. This hike will exit the upper trail and the group will then hike over to the glacier and access the ice after gearing up with the provided gear.Your guide will lead you around the many glacial features that are encountered and explain the various sights and sounds that occur as you hike on this mammoth piece of ice.
