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

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.

10 mile hike round trip and I have never hike deforestation and made it no problem. Well worth it, wildlife and the flowers were beautifully blooming in the meadows. Such an amazing day.

After the first 3 miles, no matter how beautiful the scenery, your mind will start to play with you and you'll mumble something like, "This better be worth it." Well, when you make that final right turn and look down on the iceberg-choked lake, you'll just blurt out a reverent, "Wow." Some effort is required, but the reward is something... More

As a non-hiker, that had trouble climbing for the 5 miles to get here, it was a welcome and beautiful site. We both brought extra socks and after taking off the first pair, went in up to our ankles (deep enough for most), and sat there for a while. Beautiful place to take a well needed break. BTW, it was... More

Snow to play in and cold water to dip your toes in. Added benefit was trail that was snowed over/bridge washed out . . . a nice little adventure to find way back without getting lost.

It took us 5-6 hours to do the round trip, but we spent an hour at the lake. Just gorgeous - wildflowers blooming. It was a feast for the senses! Our two teens jumped in the lake very briefly and I entered up to my knees - it is very cold! Had a great day - one of my favorite... More

It was a longer trek than usual, but worth it to see icebergs drifting in the clear, blue water in the center of a 3000' cirque.
