The Forest Loop Trail is a 1.1 mile loop hike in Glacier Bay National Park.

Benches line the trail, strategically placed at scenic viewpoints. The Forest Loop Trail is primarily used for hiking, and is best used from March to October. The trail features amazing wild flowers and is great for all skill levels. The trail can be accessed from the lodge or from south of the boat ramp, between the docks.
