We enjoyed this hike and got to the trailhead early to get a spot at the 20 spot parking area. By 9 you should be Ok. This hike is very buggy so wear long sleeves and pants bug spray,etc. binoculars would be great as we saw a grizzly bear , mountain goat and I was told moose can be spotted... More

This hike is located in the Many Glacier area. It is well worth the drive across the park, but would plan on spending the whole day traveling and hiking, if you are staying in West Glacier/Whitefish area. The hike is about 10 miles and the hike in is fairly strenuous. The trail had a few areas of snow but was... More

Relatively easy hike with eye candy scenary at the end. 90 degree weather with a lake filled with glacier ice pieces bobbing around. One of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen...and I have been around the world. Worth the nearly 10 miles round trip hike. Go early!

This hike out of Many Glacier is perfect for those looking for a moderately challenging day hike. The first third of the hike is strenuous but during the last two thirds the trail flattens out just below the tree line for a nice stroll to the blue glacial lake. Perfect for lunch and a foot soak.

We first did the Iceberg hike years ago when our children were small. The boys were, if I remember correctly, 6 and 9 at the time and had no trouble making the hike. Since that time, we had two failed attempts to repeat (one bear encounter caused us to turn back after a mile, another time the weather was so... More

This is a great hike, with the most scenic lake at the end as a prize for taking the somewhat long hike. Not sure how long it is.... 7 miles roundtrip? Check the guide books. Nevertheless, fairly moderate. Took us around three hours total, with a small stay once we arrived at the lake. If you are on the verge... More

The five of us started on this hike early in the morning (by eight in the morning.) My husband has trouble with bad ankles and has two artificial hips, but he made it through this ten mile hike by taking it slow and easy. It's a steep trail in the beginning but gets gentler as you climb..I was ahead of... More

after walking the trail, great lake made by glacier melt and beautiful glacier pond color, reminding me of Canadain glacier lakes..

If you aim for solitude, this is not a trail for you. But if you are willing to sacrifice solitude for an easy 10 mile round-trip hike with a destination that includes some amazingly blue water (once the lake finally thaws) and ice floats that may not ever melt. Bring a lunch, but be prepared to protect it from the... More

One one the most beautiful hikes in Glacier! The first part is steep but worth it. Lots of wildlife, deer & marmots. Continue on to Ptarmigan tunnel for added beauty on the far side. This takes most of a full day.
