Matanuska Glacier is a valley glacier in the US state of Alaska. At 27 miles long by 4 miles wide, it is the largest glacier accessible by car in the United States. Its terminus feeds the Matanuska River. The Matanuska Glacier is without a doubt the largest and most spectacular sight between the cities of Palmer and Glennallen, and was chosen by Alaska Magazine as #2 of “49 PLACES TO GO IN THE 49th STATE”. It originates from within the Chugach mountain range of South Central Alaska and is visible from the Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway in Glacier View, Alaska.
