    If you don't mind 3 miles of uphill hiking, I think Crater Lake is an awesome hike. You top out on a nice lake surrounded by mountains, and you'll be mostly alone. Great option, but you'll certainly break a sweat.

    Don't forget about the Harding Ice Field Trail. Climbs up high with nice views of the valley below where you start at Exit Glacier.

    seward hike

    One of the prettiest hikes i ever took was the lost lake trail. You get above timber can see the ocean and there is a beautiful water fall. The fishing is also great! Chef

    After exit glacier try the bay

    Dan,
    If they want you want to hike along Ress. bay there is a trailhead that starts by Millers landing. It is a mile to Tonsina creek, where you cross the bridge & then can hike the shoreline all the way to Caines head if the tide is out.
    The hike to the creek is easy & usually worth the short amount of time as the salmon spawn in the creek later in the season.

    I agree with the Ptarmigan Lake hike. Beautiful scenery and fairly easy.

    More options

    Brian had some good ideas. The Carter Lake hike is awesome but a committment. Right across from Exit Glacier is the Resurrection River Trail head. Vagt Lake would be an easy hike. The hike to Ptarmigan Lake is a fairly easy 3 mile jaunt that follows a pretty stream and ends at a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains.

    Looking for dayhike near Seward

    I will be going down to Seward next week and I am looking for a good 2-4 mile hike. I will have some family visiting from North Carolina (my home state) and want to show them some pretty scenery. Any ideas greatly appreciated.
