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

Opted to take this hike because the hike to Grinnell Glacier was still snowed it. Couldn't have been any happier with it. There is a bit of big climbing right at the start for a bit more than a 1/4 mile, but the rest of the elevation climb on the trail isn't much to speak of (important when you are... More

I have not tackled many hikes longer than a few miles, so hiking the 10-11 mile round trip up to Iceberg Lake was a real treat. We even kept going after a momma grizzly and her two cubs decided to cross our path. My friend even took a dunk in the water filled with ice. The trail is a variety... More

Glacier National Park has many features such as mountains, snowfields, alpine lakes, wildlife, and beautiful wild flowers. You can see them all on this 10 mile hike. It starts with a steep quarter mile from the parking lot at Many Glacier. The rest of the hike is on a well maintained trail with very good signage - you can't get... More

About ten miles round trip with gentle slopes and a great payoff at the top - Iceberg Lake! Good day trip. Take lunch and eat at the lake.

This year, I've been to Zion twice, Yosemite, Lassen Volcanic Park, Pinnacles National Monument, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National. This was one of the most enjoyable hikes ever. Awesome mountain views, plentiful and diverse wildlife, amazing wild flowers, waterfalls, not too difficult of a hike, and best of all, the iceberg lake!!! I was worried that there wouldn't be...

Took my family here to hike the 10 miles to the lake. Great time with a moderate hike there and back. My 10yo did this hike with no issues. I'd plan for 5-6 hours for the hike and stay at the lake. If you're staying in many glacier, it's a nice afternoon hike. From Apgar, plan most of your day... More

Due to sickness of fellow hiker, went to West Glacier via Sun Road in early AM of last day. Saw Eddies and after the drive, got the menu. I had breakfast earlier but worked up an appetite just seeing sights in West side of the park. The oatmeal had brown sugar, nuts, raisins and cream on the side (or was... More

First of all, I'd like to make it clear that I don't think this trail is bad. I spent two days in the park and made plan here basing on the review. And I was a bit disappointed. It's 10-11 miles in total and took me 5 hours hiking. The view on the trail is far from perfect. And the... More

We left at 10am, back 4pm. We spent 1 1/2 hrs at the lake. There was a nice photo spot of the lake 1/2 way up the privy path. We felt this lake was prettier than Ginnel Glacier lake. These were cleaner "ice" chunks than at the Glinnel glacier lake.

Worst of the hike is the first 1/4 mi., the wonderful easy hike up to a huge payoff at the lake. However, best only for 3-weeks each season as the bergs break up and melt. Wonderful wildflower field also just prior to the lake. Animal sightings frequent (griz and moose)
