Located near the lake at the Nizina Glacier terminus, this location offers a variety of hiking terrain and expansive views dominated by nearby Nizina and Chimney Mountains. Follow the river bank upstream, along the glacier margin where blue ice is exposed by calving, seek out waterfall fed rock pools off of Moonshine Creek or ascend Doubtful Creek into the higher country.
I can't sing enough praise for the folks at Wrangell Mountain Air. They're a very professional outfit, they have the most useful trip planning information for the independent backpacker that I've ever seen, and, most important of all, they are honestly concerned with your safety. .
