Description

This short and steep trail starts at the Worthington Glacier State Park parking lot. Follow a well-defined trail through the alders and past a couple viewpoints and up a set of switchbacks to the alpine. Once on the ridge, follow it .25 miles to a reroute through an alder patch on your left and into a beautiful flowery valley. This reroute off the ridge bypasses dangerous unstable ground.

Connect back to the ridge proper on the large fin to gain spectacular views of Worthington Glacier and Thompson Pass. This is one of the most beautiful hikes in the state and allows for fast access to amazing road-side ice.
