Ben Jones is at heart an adventurer who delights in inspiring others. A former reporter and photojournalist, he explored towns large and small as a Wisconsin correspondent for USA Today. He later became a lead photographer and senior copywriter for an award-winning destination marketing agency, before founding Boldland Creative, a company that produces photography, video, and other content for travel destinations. Jones has completed photography and content projects in more than 15 states and when he’s not looking through a camera or at his Macbook you’ll find him exploring the world’s lakes and forests.
There are some hikes where the journey is just as rewarding as the destination. The Bartlett River Trail will take you to a wild river but you’ll encounter so much more – unspoiled forest, gorgeous wildlife, and tranquil wetlands. The trail is a great entryway into the incredible Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve and if you hike the whole trail, you’ll be treated to a vista of a pristine Alaska estuary.
The only hotel in the park is located near the trail. Glacier Bay Lodge offers rustic and cozy accommodations as well as nice views of the Fairweather Mountain range. Interested in more Alaska hikes? Here are some scenic trails that will lead you to more unforgettable places.
