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

We spent 5 whole days in Glacier doing long hikes. This was was nice and if you have never seen icebergs floating in water - then go do this. if you dont have time, I would skip this hike. We enjoyed it going, the lake and returning but again, we did a lot of hiking and it was our last... More

Lovely forested hike with several areas in the open with great views. The elevation changes are manageable, but it is a 10 mile RT hike. There were a lot of people on the trail, so pass this one up if you are looking for peace and solitude. We did see a moose at the little lake just before Iceberg Lake,... More

My husband and I did three hikes while at Many Glacier...Grinnell Glacier, Iceberg Lake and Swiftcurrent Pass. Our favorite hike was Grinnell Glacier. The icebergs at Iceberg Lake in late July were pretty much non-existent. If you want to see icebergs, do the Grinnell Glacier hike...you get the scenery, the glacier, and icebergs in the lake. All-in-all, it was still... More

The hike is 10 miles roundtrip, and fairly level. Not difficult if you are in reasonably good shape. And so very, very worth it. I did not want to leave. Absolutely beautiful. We accidently encountered and joined a ranger led hike, and it was excellent! We learned so much, and the pace wasn't too slow. Highly recommend.

Hiked this trail with 4 teenagers. The first part of this trail is a steep incline but it levels out and your climb up is gradual. From the parking lot it was about 10.2 miles round trip. Took us 7 hours. There is a beautiful area with waterfalls you can take a break roughly half way through. Watch out for... More

10 miles round trip but not much elevation gain (1200 ft) but what a reward at the top! Hike can be made by yourself or with ranger guided well worth the time and info you'll get from the great rangers

Fabulous hike from start to finish. Lots of interesting sites, culminating in a wonderful lake. The lake has lots of little icebergs and pieces of ice floating around in it. Kids waded out to be photographed, said they couldn't feel their feet. :) Guess it was pretty cold in Iceberg Lake.

Iceberg Lake was the highlight of my trip to Glacier National Park. The view when I came around the corner literally left me breathless. I would call this a must do hike for anyone at the park. Jeremy

Wife and I hiked this trail the other day. We didn't carry any bear spray so we were using the talking and clapping method. A woman ahead of us turned around and said we didn't have to talk land clap,as she had bear spray and bells. I was polite and thanked her although I wanted to say something. Anyway we... More

Excellent, so wonderful, so wild, and all the icebergs on the lake give on overall landscape, a lot of flower along the trail. but do it early in the morning ! after it's crowdy
