This trail starts out with a easy hike through the Trail of the Cedars. The goal is Avalanche Lake, and there are pretty small waterfalls along the way. It's a nice hike for a "rest day" before you tackle something like Sperry Trail.

We did this hike after riding a two hour horse ride. We started around Noon and are slow hikers. It starts with a good climb and then "levels" out to a slower incline for most of the hike. We took plenty of breaks to stop and enjoy the scenery and it was quite doable. Once reaching the Lake, it was... More

It's a long 5 mile one way hike, but the views are worth it. The lake is so blue as well as the ice floating in it. It's a great place for lunch and hike back. We went with the Glacier Trails Guide.

Great hike, trial well marked. Lake was beautiful and some were jumping in for a quick dip even in September. Views along the way were great! Love this hike-will return and do again. We combined this with the Ptmergian Tunnel Hike-wow what a day!

I agree with the reviewers that call this hike breathtaking. It difficult for me due to its length, but I will always be happy I made it. The views along the way, as well as an abundance of wildlife made if all worthwhile. The lake itself was gorgeous and the abundance and variety of wildflowers nearby were incredible. The icebergs...

This was my first hike once I arrived in the Park and it was breath taking. So glad I took the time bec all the hiking was worth it once you get to the end. There is an amazing blue lake with little icebergs floating in the lake. Just amazing! The hike there was just as beautiful but the icing... More

Great designed, well maintained trail on east side of park. About 10 miles round trip. As senior citizens, we did it in 4 1/2 hours. Not strenuous. Saw one grizzly bear from about 100 yards. Outstanding views, alpine lakes and wildflowers. Somewhat crowed early September. Not a hike for solitude. Payoff at end - a lake with icebergs. Tip: walk... More

I'm 54 and not a hiker so I was a bit scared of this 10 mile round trip identified as moderate. But it wasn't bad at all. Easier than the logan pass walk to hidden lake. We started off in a Ranger led group and walked back just with our group of 4. The trail was very busy so less... More

Picked this hike based on others reviews and was not disappointed - except for the fact that EVERYONE told us we would see bears on this hike and we didn't. Sort of glad we didn't have to use the bear spray though. Really awesome experience and perfect weather too.

We did this as a second leg to the Ptarmigan Tunnel hike. The experience does not disappoint -- it's a pretty hike with sweeping views, and the Iceberg Lake is just that.
