Eielson Visitor Center Review

At Mile 66 on the Park Road is the Eielson Visitor Center, the park's pride and joy. LEED certified as a green building, Eielson offers amazing views of the mountain, the glaciers, and what happens to a landscape when glaciers go away. Inside is the usual interpretive material. Starting around the beginning of June, the center offers a daily guided walk at 1 pm, an easy 45-minute exploration of the landscape. Another hike each day takes on a little rougher terrain. Guided hikes vary from day to day to minimize the impact on the surroundings. Guided snowshoe walks are also offered January–March on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
