This short hike follows the lateral moraine of Worthington Glacier, offering impressive views of the deeply crevassed glacier below and of the alpine meadows and mountain wilderness of the Thompson Pass area. This informal trail, created simply by the passage of feet, is a perfect leg-stretcher for the more adventurous visitors to Worthington Glacier and gives a hint of the thrill of mountaineering. Those bothered by exposure will want to stick to the lower part of this trail or to the short, paved flatland trail near the glacier face. Don’t let cloudy or misty weather cancel the hike; the blue of the ice is more intense on gray days, and the mountains are more mysterious. This glacial landscape is recognized as a National Natural Landmark. Like many other Alaskan glaciers, Worthington is receding.
