Description

Literally used as a textbook example for glacial features, Schoolroom Glacier has defined terminal and lateral moraines (accumulated glacial debris), crevasses (deep fissures), and a proglacial lake (a lake formed from melt water by the damming from a moraine).

Get to it before it disappears!

Overnight Trip: Accessed by the Hurricane Pass Trail.

Dry, Mostly Dry - The right side of the trail is absolutely breathtaking. It runs Close to the lake for most of the trail. Large Boulder for photo op and a nice beach and really nice Mountain View's. The left side of the trail is very rugged a lot of rocks and roots. Big hills up and down. If I were to hike this trail again I would go to the right for about 3.2 miles then turn around and go back.
