Enjoy a scenic boat ride on Swiftcurrent Falls or make use of picnic spots and well-maintained nature trails that ring its shoreline. Surrounded by towering mountain peaks, this picturesque glacial lake lies at 1,487 m (4,878 ft) above sea level. The hotel on the east shore provides spectacular views, and serves as a nucleus for many hiking trails that head up into the mountains.
