10 Miles Total - 500 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Bartlett Lake Trail is a 10 mile out and back hike in Glacier Bay National Park featuring amazing scenery and wildlife spotting opportunities.

The trail is primitive, and is best for experienced hikers hoping to find a bit of solitude. 

About 3/4 down the Bartlett River Trail, the trail splits. Veer left to go on the Bartlett Lake Trail.
