Fifty-odd dogs outdoors in halved-50 gallon drums. Add an 800 lb sled plus 10 people and you get pulled around a dirt course. Training for the dogs but the human pleasure quotient is going to be highest among children and sled-dog racing fans. Those outside...More

The 1 mile hike to Exit glacier is partially paved, some gravel and some dirt. It's fairly easy...uphill some, but not too steep. No footbridges, but you have to step across a couple of small creeks/streams.
