Easy trail, mostly through the woods. The last section to the glacier was flooded and inaccessible as of 7/03/16.

Worth the hike regardless.

Beautiful, flat, easy trail. Great for biking!! Bring some camp gear and stay the night at the beach at the end.

Very flat and boring trail. Not much to see, your in the woods, few look outs on the river. Rest stop (bench) at 3.12 mile.

Beautiful trail. The end result is worth the seemingly flat first few miles. You'll come to the river where the trail starts to become a bit more rocky (while still flat) and then you will come onto a beach like area. This is a great place to rest and enjoy the beautiful view of the glacier and the river.

Great trail! Biked just about all the way to the glacier in around 30-40 minutes.

The glacier is receding so it's getting trickier to get up to it, but you can if you have time!

This is an easy ride. Long wide trail 90% of the way. As soon as you get to the river flats you have to get out on the sand to make the rest of the way to view the glacier. If you want to hike up to glacier you will hav e to leave your bike there and continue on foot.
