NPS warns visitors to stay clear of glacier due to ice fall


August 31, 2017 | View PDF

The National Park Service is warning visitors to Seward’s Exit Glacier to stay back from its immediate edge because of the danger of falling ice. Tall blocks and slabs of ice have created an ice fall hazard at the glacier’s toe and sides, so the agency is blocking people from walking up to the glacier. NPS officials are also warning visitors on their website with a message that reads, “Please do not continue past ice fall hazard zone signs.”

It’s not uncommon for ice to fall from the glacier during the warm summer months.

Exit Glacier is one of the most visited sites in Alaska. It is easily accessible by road from the highway.
