Hikers often wear bells and strike up loud conversations, so as not to startle the bears on this back country trail.

Must Hike!

Fabulous hike! Must do hike if you are in the Many Glacier area. Words can not describe the whole trail out to the lake. Then the lake is spectacular when you arrive.

Friend told us this was their favorite hike. We too enjoyed it immensely. It's not an easy one, but certainly manageable. The first look at the lake was breathtaking. We did spot moose along the trail.

Excellent hike with plenty of views along the way. A bit strenuous while going up. We saw some mountain goats and bighorns on the way.

This was our "test" hike, to see if we were strong enough to do the Grinnell Glacier hike the next day. Well worth the trip, although all the actual icebergs were gone by mid-August when we arrived. Never fear, though, because Upper Grinnell Lake has plenty to go around.

We hiked to Iceberg Lake on Aug 16 2015 and it was a great experience. We travelled with two young kids 8 year old and 3 year old. The 8 year old was able to complete the hike by himself (though he was a bit tired during the last one mile each way), and the younger one managed to hike... More

This is a great trail that is long, scenic but relatively flat. Iceberg lake is scenic and with the walk. Bring water and lunch and start early. Bear spray is a must.

This was our favorite hike in Glacier. Did not feel the elevation much except the short climb in the beginning. There was so much beauty between the wildflowers, the pine forests and arriving at the lake that the miles passed quickly. We saw lot's of ages and people of different abilities on this hike. We left early (7am) and for... More

One of the best hikes we have ever done. Beautiful views, wildflowers, a number of animal sightings made this a great time.

Great walk to Iceberg Lake. After the first bit of up, it is easy walking from there, but a long walk so be prepared with some water. The alpine meadows were so pretty in this area.

This 9 mile hike isn't too difficult and has beautiful views all along the way. The color of the water in Iceburg Lake is surreal.
