Fantastic walk!

Great place to view wildlife. The hike around the lake is an easy walk and you will thoroughly enjoy the views both water, animal and plants.

Such a beautiful spot! It is worth the trip to the Many Glaciers Area. The mountain backgrounds are perfect.

Beautiful lake surrounded by majestic peaks. Easy hiking for novices. We heard about moose and bear near the trail from other hikers, they were always gone when we got to the sighting areas. Beautiful boat ride that included Lake Josephine.

Awakening at Many Glacier Hotel and gazing out over Swiftcurrent lake was one of the highlights of our trip. Several mornings brought out moose taking an early morning drink.

Keep your eye out for wildlife. We saw a black bear. He was about 2 years old. We blew our whistles and he ran back up into the tree cover.
