Getting There

This trail leads you through spruce trees along the Resurrection River Valley. It is narrow in some places, maybe twelve inches wide. There is lots of up and down, but nothing too difficult. In addition, there are lots of protruding rocks and tree roots that could be hazardous. The trail is lightly maintained- just enough to keep it passable. It is beautiful, old-growth forest with lots of blueberries and Devil's Club.

The trailhead is just before the Resurrection River bridge and is about one mile before the Exit Glacier Nature Center.

hiked in from Cooper landing side and trail disappeared a few miles from the Seward side trailhead. Very flooded and we had to river wack for several miles through waist deep water.

hiked on 9-16-2019, understand others saying solitude. Easy path to walk and path in good condition, elevation is more gradual than other hikes in the area. The end of the trail is very wet and hard to get through we went a day after rain.

Trail was very narrow in some areas and seems lightly used. If you’re looking for solitude, this is a good hike for you.

First to Review

A great hike for those looking for solitude. Lightly maintained trail through old growth forest with lots of devil's club and blueberries. Trail could be muddy in some areas as water flows toward the river. Trail also crosses three creeks. Be aware of lots of protruding rocks and tree roots. Trail is as narrow as 12 inches in some areas.
