This trail has paved road access, a fantastic waterfall and a scenic glacier; you can even get onto the ice if you are equipped and experienced. The Place Creek waterfall is truly spectacular, although you’d need a helicopter to see it all. The Place Glacier is not large but it is the scene of much glaciological research. The scientists’ hut at the glacier snout is usable by the public, if you care to overnight there. The property owners are still generously allowing hikers to cross their land on foot. Take care, so that access is not further restricted!
