The hike to Woodbury Glacier was perhaps the most spectacular alpine hike I have taken. I stumbled upon it accidentally. It was the closest trail to Nelson that was open for use, due to grizzly bear sightings, although hikers at the trailhead reported grizzlies (mother & cub) in a huckleberry patch just up from the parking lot. The whole hike was below treeline. We hiked to a point above the glacial canyon opposite the glacier which was rounded and receding but magnificent.
