Andrews Glacier:   D/R/E: 9.4 miles - 2,150' elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

The hike to Andrews Glacier takes you past the Loch for about .9 mile. Here you go right and hike up along the beautiful brook throught the subalpine forests and past the camp sites. The valley walls have many things to look at, the most obvious being Sharkstooth. Beyond treeline, there is a large mass of glacier rubble that you will have to scramble over. You can see where the glacier has pulled down many trees and rocks. Even in June and the beginning of July, you will see alot of snow and ice there. The trail winds up the right-hand side of the rock mass to Andrew's Tarn where you can see the lake and the glacier. The flowers up here on the tundra are beautiful. This is a great place to stop for lunch.
