Exit Glacier
A one-mile wheelchair-accessible loop (partially paved, partially compressed gravel) leads to a panoramic view of Exit Glacier spilling down from the Harding Icefield. A spotting scope is available at the viewpoint.

Wheelchairs are available to be borrowed at the Exit Glacier Nature Center. They are first come-first served, and a ID will be held till they are returned.

Visitor Centers
Kenai Fjords National Park Information Center in Seward and the Exit Glacier Nature Center are both wheelchair accessible.

Public Use Cabins
All Public Use Cabins have wheelchair accessible decks and doors. Assistance may be required to access the cabins from the beach.

River Otter

River otters defecate in certain spots to mark their territory. Researchers in Kenai Fjords National Park have discovered that these "latrine sites" enrich the soil, allowing plants to grow in those spots that aren't found anywhere else close by.
