Emmons Moraine Trail Professional Review and Guide

"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 children. Hike along the Emmons Moraine for a close-up view of the Emmons Glacier. At one time the Emmons Glacier filled the whole valley here, carving an amazingly flat and expansive section out of the earth.
