Nice hike with beautiful wildflowers and some wildlife along the route. If you want a better lake experience (in my humble opinion), take the hike to Avalanche Lake.

Moderate Hike, but you can turn around at any time and still enjoy awesome views! Expect to see lots of wildlife including a possible bear or two.

This hike comes in at 3.2 miles round trip with minimal elevation gain (guidebooks say ~150ft). It was a nice afternoon hike. When we went in July there were still a few areas of snow crossing, but nothing too difficult. We saw a lot of mountain goats along the trail, but no bears (the trail from the overlook down to...

In a Fodor's National Park book we bought as we planned our road trip out West, it stated this hike was "Easy" and "Family friendly"... I think that was a bit of an undersell. Don't take small kids on this climb (unless you are willing to carry them most of the way) or people with limited mobility. The boardwalk winding... More

Take this hike for a picturesque surprise in the mountains. The hike maybe a bit strenuous, but the pictures at the end is marvelous.

First of all, don't let the boardwalks deceive you into thinking this is a very easy stroll - the boardwalks are there to protect the fragile environment, and they continue, with many steps, over several hidden hills before changing to a hiking trail to the lake overlook. Lots of people on the trail even after mid-September. We were there in... More

Loved this hike. We went around 12-1 in afternoon, so sunlight was perfect for taking photos. The parking at Logan Pass was awful, but we managed to find a spot. We went 1/2 way down to the lake. We didn't go all the way to the bottom because we thought the hike back up (very steep) would be way more... More

3miles round trip and it's up hill. good path but lots of steps . Beautiful area. The wildflowers were in bloom and several waterfalls plus we saw mountain sheep and various other little critters. The view of the lake at the overlook is antistatic. so if you are able do this.

Ok so it's not like we went backpacking but hey it's a nice walk. You get to walk up to a glacier . Go soon they are melting. Great views, a bit of exercise, it's well worth the stop. Early in the day is best the parking lots a drag.
