As an 8.2-mile round trip hike, Harding Icefield Trail is a strenuous trail at the best times of the year. You will begin at the valley floor, then make your way through forests of alder and cottonwood to eventually find yourself at an awe-inspiring view of the icefield: a horizon made of ice and snow. Plan for this trail to take between 6 and 8 hours to complete.
