    Anyone have info or a link on how to get to the Big 4 Glacier (not the same as the ice caves). A friend took me here long ago and I've been trying to find it ever since. Just going by the name I believe it's on Big 4 Mtn off the Mountain Loop Highway which would make a nice ride. Throw in a short hike to the glacier for a picnic lunch would make it an unforgettable experience.

    I'm pretty sure there's no glacier on Big 4. Must be somewhere else.

    You might be thinking of Three Fingers. The summit elevation is a bit less than 7,000 feet and there is a ladder at the top to climb to get to the summit right after you traverse the snowfield. You can see the Queest Alb glacier from Tin Can Gap

    I know for a fact it's called Big 4 since it's shaped like a "4". However I think I've seen news stories a while back of it being closed down due to multiple accidents. A friend took me there years ago and I was just trying to rediscover it, more importantly the roads to it for a ride idea.
