Trailhead starts at Swiftcurrent Motor inn parking lot. It is easy walking with not much gradient. It's Bear Country & better carry the spray. Lake is very nice & enjoyed the serenity.

The color of this lake is amazing! We hiked Fishercap Lake/Redrock Falls trail which was amazing. Great day!

We celebrated St. Valentine’s with my girlfriend in this beautiful lake in February this year. We stayed for 3 nights at the Many Glacier Hotel and it was fantastic. The view over the Swiftcurrent Lake is stunning especially at dusk. There’s something magical about this place. You may rent canoes and kayaks from the dock.

A beautiful very deep lake. Crystal clear water. The mountains come down straight into the water in places. Many Glacier hotel is on the shore. They rent canoes and kayaks. There are wooden boat cruises.

Many Glacier Lodge on Swiftcurrent with the mountain in the background was gorgeous. They picked the perfect spot for this historic lodge. It looked the best early in the morning when the lake was like glass. There are hiking trails around the lake and a boat tour across the lake and on to the next lake.

The Many Glaciers boat ride starts in this lake. It's a very pretty lake with nice views of the mountains. The boat ride was a quick way to get across the lake and save on some hiking for those with weary legs. You may even see bears or bighorn sheep from the boat. We did.

We hiked and did the boat ride. Recommend both. Looks like the Inn would have Amazing views if room on lake side.

This is a beautiful lake. It is well worth a drive to get there. Take a walk around the lodge, and definitely walk by the lake. Allow plenty of time.

Has great views of Salamander glacier in the background. This is where you can start the Grinnell glacier trail. You can also rent kayaks/canoes at the hotel.

this lake has it all. Its so close to the swift current cabins that after a six minute walk from your front door you can be right in the middle of absolutely nothing and everything all at once, if that makes sense. Bears and moose are thick in this area. Bring your bear spray and cameras and get ready
