Hiking Anderson Glacier

The Anderson Glacier Trail is a backcountry trail located in the eastern reaches of Olympic National Park. This short spur trail starts at Anderson Pass and ascends in a series of steep switchbacks to a moraine that overlooks a lake and the former site of Anderson Glacier.

It will take hikers big miles to reach this trail, so it’s usually a side trip on a longer backpacking outing. It is accessed most directly from either the West Fork Dosewallips River or the Quinault River, but can also be reached via the Duckabush and North Fork Skokomish Rivers.
