Exit Glacier is the primary destination for visitors to witness up close the power of the glaciers. It is also the home to the Exit Glacier Nature Center and the trail head for the Harding Icefield Trail.
Hiking through the Outwash Plain, directly in front of Exit Glacier, is a great way to see the glacier up front. The hike can be challenging, especially if Exit Creek, the glacier-fed creek that flows from the toe of the glacier, blocks your path.
Interpretive park rangers staff the Exit Glacier Nature Center during the summer months. Interpretive programs, which follow the trail to the Edge of the Glacier, are offered every day at 10, 2, and 4.
