This glacier is amazingly beautiful, and such a reward for such a short hike! The hike there I believe was just short of 1 mile, and easy enough that an elderly gentleman with a cane was among our company. Byron Glacier is located near Portage, AK, just a short drive from Anchorage. The blue of the glacier is magnificent, and the surrounding smooth rocks add an additional charm. There are many glaciers nearby, but this happens to be one the most accesible. If you ever find yourself driving along the Alaska Scenic Byway between Anchorage and Seward and don’t have enough time to stop and see all the glaciers, this is a great quick stop.
