  • 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.
