Matanuska Glacier
The Matanuska Glacier is the largest glacier in Alaska that can be reached by road. It is 26 miles long and 4 miles wide at its terminus. It originates from within the Chugach mountain range of Southcentral Alaska.
The pullout for Matanuska Glacier is at mile 91.7 of the Glenn Highway and there are several more pullouts further down the highway.
You can also explore the Matanuska glacier ice up-close at the privately-owned Matanuska Glacier Park (Glenn Highway milepost marker 102). The $20 entrance fee gives travelers access to drive up to and park next to the glacier. From there, if you wish, you can continue on foot onto the ice in about fifteen minutes.
