Herbert Glacier/River

Distance: ~10.5 Miles round trip

Difficulty: Easy

Hazards: Trail passes through active brown bear and moose habitat.

Description: From the trail head users will find a wide open flat and well groomed trail for the first 4 miles. The trail follows the Herbert River up to its sourceĀ  the Herbert Glacier. The Glacier is hidden from view till the washout at mile 4 at which point users will have to travel along dry river bed providing expansive views of Herbert Glacier. The mass of the Glacier create an optical illusion as it is ~2 miles from this point to the face and one must cross over to the opposite side of the river for a successful approach.
