Although it’s size today is scarcely a shadow of its former mass, Arapaho Glacier still retains the distinction of being Colorado’s largest glacier. It is only about a quarter-mile long, a half-mile wide, and 200 feet thick-tiny by world standards. Nevertheless, it really is a glacier and not just a snowfield. Geologists from the University of Colorado have confirmed that it is still moving, ever so slowly, so it is classified as a true glacier. Arapaho is also one of the state’s most easily accessible glaciers. It is situated only 3.5 miles from the Fourth of July Trailhead, and there is an excellent viewpoint high above its southern slopes in a shallow pass between Caribou Peak and South Arapaho Peak.
