Tracy Arm

Tracy Arm is a fjord in Alaska near Juneau, located adjacent to Stephens Passage within the Tongass National Forest. Tracy Arm is the heart of the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, designated by the United States Congress in 1980.

Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness contains 2,643.32 km2, and consists of two deep and narrow fjords: Tracy Arm and Endicott Arm. Both fjords are over 48 km long and one-fifth of their area is covered in ice. During the summer, the fjords have considerable floating ice ranging from hand-sized to pieces as large as a three-story building. During the most recent glaciated period, both fjords were filled with active glaciers.
