Byron Glacier Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail is an easy, fully-accessible trail traveling along a glacial
creek, through lush forest and ending with a stunning view of the Byron Glacier. Portage Valley is one of the most popular visitor destinations in Alaska, but don’t let that scare you away. The valley’s blue ice and glacial scenery is outstanding, and many visitors simply stop at the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center, enjoy the surroundings a bit, and leave for the next attraction. If you stick around for a short hike to Byron Glacier, you’ll be glad you did. Bring rain gear along, however, in case the valley’s frequent, pelting rains strike while you’re on the trail."
