Kenai Fjords Exit Glacier National Park FREE
There are some glaciers you can drive to, but very few that you can stroll to. With just a 10 to 15 minute drive out of Seward, you can hike right up to the Kenai Fjords National Park's Exit Glacier and experience the dense blue ice while listening to it crackle. Where many cruises embark and disembark, Exit Glacier is one of the most popular road-accessible glaciers in the state. In fact, it's only a 15-20 minute, flat walk from the parking area to the glacier, but you will walk through a trail in the forest and along a gravel river bar. At the start, you will follow history where you can see the changes in vegetation with the gradual melting of the glacier. Markers have been placed showing the glacier's recession over the past 120 years. The well-developed trails here have good footing and interpretive signs, explaining the return of plant life after the ice.
