Embraced by glaciers - Visitor trail

The path leads from the parking area to the glacier. From the glacier margin, a visitor trail leads back to the parking lot. Numbered posts refer to text in a booklet which is an available in a box on the infor-mation board. Highlights: The icecap, glacier margin, dirt cones, dramatic wilderness and climate change. The trail is mostly sandy and dry, and easy to walk on even though there are some stony sections. Glaciers are constantly changing so the visitor trail is reviewed each summer, both the route and the features which are pointed out. Glaciers shape the land and create vast landscapes. Their shimmering masses reach skywards; they dig deep valleys and push up hills and ridges. Here, at the glacier margin, there are many small glacial features; some are not obvious, but they are impressive if you look carefully.
