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, the Eielson Stroll, at 1 pm, an easy 45-minute exploration of the landscape. Another daily ranger-led experience, the two-mile Eielson Alpine Hike, 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 through March on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
