7 Breathtaking Hikes in the U.S.

Posted on

2. Harding Icefield Trail

Where: Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska
Distance: 8.4 miles round-trip

The view from the top of Harding Icefield is often described as a “window into past ice ages.” It’s the kind of place where climbing to the top makes you feel as big as a giant but the scenery makes you feel as small as an ant. The peak offers sweeping views of bright blankets of snow, icy peaks and a stillness that takes your breath away. Then again, maybe you’re breathless from the 3,000-foot elevation gain, but we all know views like this don’t come easy! Be on the lookout for mountain goats, marmots and even grizzlies making the ascent look effortless.
