  • Description


    Getting There

    Boat across Chilkat Inlet or get an air taxi from Haines.


    Glacier Point is a spit of land pushed out and deposited by the Davidson Glacier. Until the late 1900's Davidson Glacier used to continue flowing out on to Glacier Point but now it terminates at the base of the mountains.

    Much of Glacier Point is privately owned, however there is an airstrip and trails open to the public. Most of the area around the lake and all around the glacier is public lands.

    There are periods of high bear activity on the trails that lead to Davidson Glacier. Check with the visitor center before heading over. 907-766-2234
