A forested out-and-back that leads to the tidal flats of Bartlett River.

Features River/Creek · Views

Overview

An accessible option from Bartlett Cove that samples many of the defining features of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.

Description

The Bartlett River Trail starts out through northern rainforest, along the shoreline of Glacier Bay. Glimpses of Glacier Bay and its islands can be seen through the trees. It then veers away from the shoreline, and one finds themselves surrounded by forest - tall fir trees and lush ground cover vegetation. Everything is moist everywhere.

Towards the end of Bartlett River Trail, it comes out of the forest next to the tidal flats of the Bartlett River. If one is lucky enough to have a clear day, views of the Fairweather Mountain Range can be seen in the distance.

Flora & Fauna

Northern rainforest - tall fir trees, lush vegetation, colorful mushrooms in late summer.
