Spencer Glacier

September 10 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 pm

Spencer Glacier Excursion

Join Mat Su Central on an amazing field trip to Spencer Glacier! The Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop is a remote wilderness area that is only accessible by train. It’s also home to one of the most spectacular and visible glaciers along the Rail-belt: Spencer Glacier, a massive wall of ice cascading down the mountains to Spencer Lake. The station area at the Whistle Stop includes a roofed shelter & restrooms. Disembarking the train, we will be greeted by a National Forest Service Ranger and enjoy a guided 1.3 mi. nature walk along the trail to the overlook.
