Description

The Tlingit Trail is much more than it may appear at first glance.

Just over one mile each way, this easy stroll connects the public boat dock and visitor center and offers opportunities to "see a traditional Tlingit canoe, gaze at a complete whale skeleton, learn about common native plants and experience Tlingit culture and art at the Huna Tribal House," the park notes.

If you just arrived at Glacier Bay, the Tlingit Trail is the first trail to explore. As mapped, the trail begins at the public boat dock at Bartlett Cove and abruptly ends at Park Road.

This out-and-back tour of the exhibits is a great way to stretch your sea legs after the boat ride there, and a great option for anyone in the family. For a slightly longer hike around the visitor center, consider the [Forest Trail Loop]() instead.

The portion of the trail between the trailhead and small pond is also fully-accessible, making it a great option for anyone in the family. [NPS](https://www.nps.gov/glba/planyourvisit/bartlett-cove-trails.htm)
