A fairly straightforward hike, as there are no trees and you can see your destination (the glacier) the entire time. The climb is quite shallow for most of the way, with several short periods of steep ascents. Lots of rocky terrain and muddy/boggy ground. At the destination, glacial melt creates deep mud, so keep an eye on your footing as you approach the ice. Overall a beautiful, scenic hike.
