It's a steep hike but it's not terribly long. Only 7k from the parking lot to the amazing lake. The lakeside hut is great as a base or one of the dozens of incredible-view tent pads. The glacier is close by and easily accessible and relatively safe to hike on as long as you stay away from the edges and... More
