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

Great hike, extremely long and not for the faint of heart, but absolutely worth it. The trail winds up into the canyon towards the lake. Pack snacks and a lunch to eat. Right before arriving at the lake, a bighorn sheep came bounding down the trail towards us, we had to dodge to get out of the way. Flying past... More

Did this last week on our honeymoon and it was the highlight of the trip. The first 1/2 mile is steep but it is a gradual incline the rest of the way. we are in good shape and made it up in 1 hour 40 minutes and ran down in an hour. People looked at us like we were crazy.... More

The first quarter mile up the trail can be a deal breaker but once you get past that the rest of the trail is fairly level with great views of the Many Glacier Valley and surrounding mountains. Several beautiful waterfalls and if you get there in the spring, wildflowers everywhere. Iceberg lake itself reminds you of something you would expect... More

This hike is one of my favorites In Glacier National Park. Other reviews are correct in that the first part of the hike was difficult for me,BUT once you are up above the tree line the views are heavenly. Words can't describe how beautiful Iceberg Lake is. And the air is so fresh and clean. The wildflowers add a great... More

This is not a hike to miss out on. It is moderate in difficulty and be aware that there is a elevation gain through almost all of the way to the lake. My wife and I took our time, took many pictures of the landscape and gorgeous views. We encountered a grizzly bear and a large male moose in the... More

This is a very long hike, and not for the out of shape hiker. Lots of wildlife and very possibly the most scenic of any trail I have ever hiked anywhere.

As someone who has done many hikes, I can say with all certainty this is an amazing hike. I recommend going in the morning to avoid the "crowds" (crowds being a relative term, nothing like Yellowstone). My family and I packed a lunch for at the top and took some unforgettable pictures. Just a wonderful experience over all.

I loved this trail . It is a moderate to difficult hike. Takes 4-5 hours depending on your speed. You are rewarded with this polar like atmosphere at the end. Many small snow melt falls and Ptarmigan Falls which is amazing .

This hike provides great mountain views and has a unique payoff at the end. This was our first hike on our trip to GNP and we would do it again.
