Quite an easy trail with an outstanding view of Byron Glacier. Intrepid risk-takers can, of course, go OFF the trail and get a closer look. Be prepared for plenty of the unofficial Alaska State Bird (mosquito) to appear, and there are numerous bear sightings/warnings posted, so bring your cowbell. Cloud-free days are rare in Portage Valley. But don't despair, as the glacier-blue color is best seen on cloudy days.
