The Amalga Trail used to access the site continues on for another 2 miles to the glacier. Cross-country skis are not advised for this trail in winter due to bumpy terrain, but it is ideal for snowshoeing. The trail can get muddy in the warmer months, so hikers should be sure to wear the proper footwear. The trail is somewhat challenging but with only 300 feet in elevation gain.

Berries are available for picking in the summer.
