  • It is moderate intensity one day hike, definitely worth spending one day, the view and color of the lake will be well earned reward

  • Yet another beautiful glacier lake within GNP. This is a tough trail but the destination is worth it. There are some spots that are pretty narrow on the trail. Once you get to the lake, make sure to stop and take a break and have some lunch! The water is absolutely beautiful
  • This has to be one of the most unique lakes I saw while at Glacier and well worth the somewhat lengthy hike. The trail wasn't terribly strenuous with long switchbacks on places where you did have to climb. We also saw a bear right of the trail during this hike, the only time during our visit in the park that we saw a bear while hiking. It was also fun to find the old mining equipment, and even find that it was manufactured near my hometown in Indianapolis, Indiana.
