Description

Beach Trail starts at the docks in the Glacier Bay village and heads southwest, passing the campground. The trail heads along the beach which is rocky.

This trail is a great place to watch for all sorts of sea wildlife - killer whales, minke whales, humpback whales spouting, etc. Bald eagles and other birds can be seen. On a clear day the Fairweather Range rises in the distance.
