  • We really enjoyed this section of the park...had some very close sightings of moose...bear...deer..etc. This area of the park seemed even more "wild" then the rest and rapidly became my favorite...  more »
  • If you are hiking to swiftcurrent pass, you will pass Bullhead Lake along the way. Or you can just hike to Bullhead Lake, which I believe is 8 miles roundtrip. Mostly flat hike with incredible views.....  more »
  • Another beautiful lake just below Mount Grinnell. Getting access to the lake however is a bit harder. As you ascent to Swiftcurrent Pass, you will have the most stunning views of Bullhead Lake from above.
  • This is another stunning lake in the Many Glaciers side of the park. This one is a bit harder to get close to and a good view of, but it is still spectacular. Watch for moose and bear as always. The hike to this lake is about 7.2 miles roudtrip from the Swiftcurrent Pass Trailhead in Many Glacier. You will pass a couple of other lakes and some really stunning falls.
