6 miles round trip, saw mule deer and moose and mountain goats. nice panoramic views of valleys and mountain sides. not to hard of a walk, somewhat decent shape to do.. beautiful lake with some glacier remaining, well worth the walk..

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

A good hike- about 10 miles round trip. We had two adults and three children... Two tens and a 9 year old. Near the top were the most spectacular alpine meadows! The the Iceberg lake is worth the walk. Plenty of wildlife on the way. Get an early start to see more animals and fewer people. LOVED this hike! Favorite... More

We hiked this trail with Jeff from Glacier Guides and Montana Raft Co. in mid-September. This trail is a bit steep in the beginning, but Jeff made us rest a few times as we ascended the hill (about 600 ft. elevation). After that, the hike was quite easy some ups and downs, but nothing this senior citizen couldn't handle. Jeff... More

The best part was going for a dip in Iceberg Lake at the end of the trail. SO COLD! The lake is absolutely gorgeous and still had "icebergs" floating on it when we went at the beginning of September. The hike itself is also fabulous, but the trail is quite busy and well worn. If you enjoy solitude on your... More

My favorite hiking destination on any continent. Mere words cannot express. There is a peace there that passes all understanding and gives new meaning to the salutation " May the peace of the wilderness be with you".

This is a very nice hike with a pretty gradual climb through a mix of forest and meadow. I felt the very first part from the parking lot was the steepest, and then it leveled off very nicely all the way to the lake. We went in September - beautiful sunny and cool day and not a whole lot of... More

The hike to Iceberg Lake is about 8 miles (~14kms) but, despite the increase in elevation from start to finish, it is not too difficult. The trail is in good condition, and the climb is gradual. We were surprised by deer on the trail on our return - a true wildlife encounter.

Great hike. Bring bear spray... The first time I did this hike was about 20 years ago. Every time I have hiked it since it seems there is less 'ice' at Iceberg Lake... so don't wait to do this hike, the beauty is sadly fleeting.
