My wife and I visited this glacier, located just off the Richardson Highway, during our journey from Anchorage to Valdez as part of our escorted ‘Natural Wonders of Alaska’ tour with Titan Travel. The glacier is located about 28 miles north of Valdez and is within easy access of the Richardson Highway. Our motor coach travelled up a side road leading up to the glacier... 更多
Years ago this glacier was really close to the road and you can see how it has melted and moved back. It's still a awesome and beautiful place to visit . I love the blue ice and a plus to see on sunny days. It's worth the stop and take pictures
Hiking this glacier with a guide was one of the highlights of our 3 week June trip to Alaska. Beautiful day and sunny skies lit up the glistening glacier and waterfalls. Blue ice was everywhere. Highly recommend this experience.
Whilst possibly not the most spectacular of glaciers it has to be one of the most accessible and it costs nothing. There is are information boards at the viewing area, but to get right up to the toe of the glacier one has to pick your way over the moraine. This is not a a graded path so may not... 更多
We went to the glacier with our family which includes 2 younger children. The hike up to the glacier took about an hour and it was worth it! It was beautiful and a great experience for the whole family. The park includes areas to view the glacier without taking the hike if you are not able. It's worth a stop... 更多
This was a nice, convenient place to vistit on the way to Valdez. It was raining quite hard and I would not recommend hiking to the glacier in those conditions. The views are excellent and the waterfalls next to the glacier and beautiful when there is hard rain.
My last visit was in 2004 and this time I visited in September 2016 and I was shocked at how far the glacier has receded. Even after a ten minute hike, I still was not able to reach the glacier. I took some photos, used the restroom and was on my way.
The Worthington Glacier is just at the side of the road. It is interesting with nice interpretive panels and a helpful ranger willing to answer questions, but it is not one of the big impressive glaciers.
Stopped off at the Worthington Glacier off the Thompson Pass. Able to walk to a viewing point and then proceed past the viewing point towards the glacier. Terrain not easy so for those less comfortable on their feet stay at the viewing point. Glacier receding but great views. If you intend to walk to the glacier wear appropriate footwear.
