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.
