A short hike up to the Emmons Moraine provides an excellent view of the Emmons Glacier, the largest glacier in the contiguous United States. This short, gradual uphill hike is great for older children and adults looking for a close-up view of the largest glacier in the contiguous forty-eight states. Hike along the Emmons Moraine for an unobstructed view of the Emmons Glacier and its basin, an expansive section of the earth carved out by the glacier in years past.
