We arrived at 4:00 pm in mid-July so the sun was directly facing us. Still spectacular, but if you want the best lighting for photographs, try to leave by 8:00 am or so. Also, this lake will look its best later in the summer after most of the ice has melted. Ordinarily mid-July should be OK, but it was a... More

One of the most rewarding hikes available in Glacier. From the trail-head at Swiftcurrent Motor Inn the hike is 9.7 miles round trip, it's a fairly easy hike even for the most novice hiker, the trail rises very slowly bringing you high enough to enjoy some of the greatest views you can imagine. If you visit in mid to late... More

Iceberg Lake Trail is probably one of the most beautiful hiking trails we have ever hiked. The first 1/4 mile or so is uphill and a bit steep, but the rest of the trail is easy. The trail follows a ridge that has vistas to the surrounding mountains. Wildflowers are abundant, and multicolored, and line the trail and hillsides of... More

The hike isn't for the faint of heart or the out of shape. Those who venture it though will see one of the most beautiful landscapes seen by humans ever.

The lake isn't full of icebergs, they are ice pieces but it is a beautiful trail with a waterfall on the way. The views are fabulous.

This is a glorious hike. You get wonderful views throughout, and you are rewarded with the lovely Iceberg Lake at the end. It's a long hike, so bring lots of water and food. I took a million pictures, too.

I am not exactly in tip top shape but I found this hike to be very enjoyable. There aren't too many steep portions but it does take a long time. definitely take water and snacks with you. Go at a slow pace and it will be no problem at all. I would guess about medium difficulty. The views along the... More

I LOVE Iceberg Lake Trail! My hubby and I did this on our trip in July 2013, and even though it's a 10 mile hike, after the first 1/4 mile or so it is fairly level. We stopped quite a few times along the way to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. We saw two cinnamon colored black bears on... More
