About walking or hiking, and biking out to Exit Glacier from the Seward Hwy.
The road to Exit Glacier is 8.6mi one way from the Seward Hwy on Herman Leirer Road one way if hiking out or biking out to Exit Glacier. Road is closed to cars during the winter and sometimes opens in May depending on snow levels. Snow shoe trekkers dog sled teams, cross country skiers, Snow Coach and private and commercial operated snow machines use the road all winter for winter activities. Herman Leirer Rd is approx 3 mi north of Seward on the Seward Hwy. We figure that the walking or biking distance from Seward is at least 12mi. one way. Winter trekking out to Exit Glacier can be challenging depending on conditions, we recommend that you use a transport to access the park. Call us for shuttle to meet our Sno Coach and to schedule your winter Exit Glacier adventure. (Watch of Moose on the road!) Winter in Alaska can be challenging for anyone, anytime and is very unpredictable. We encourage everyone to prepair properly for any activity in the Alaskan wilderness. Adventure Sixty North uses satellite phone and radio for emergency contact while in Exit Glacier, cell is very limited...
