Worthington Glacier Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short trail with 1,200 feet in elevation and options for more
adventurous hikers, with stunning views of the Worthington
Glacier. Another of Alaska’s fine crop of drive-up glaciers, Worthington has the distinction
of being 3 miles down the road from the state’s snowiest weather-recording station,
Thompson Pass, where 81 feet fell in the winter of 1952–1953. As you might guess
from the setting, this is a popular recreation site, especially on clear days"
