Hiking the Iceberg Lake Trail in Glacier National Park

Hiking the Iceberg Lake Trail in Glacier National Park

The Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park is full of great hikes, and the Iceberg Lake Trail is definitely one of the best.  The reward doesn’t come easy, though.  At just under 10 miles (round trip), you’ll have to work to get there.  However, for those that are willing to take on the trip, they’ll enjoy breathtaking scenery along the entire route, a waterfall, several river crossings and an emerald-green, glacier-fed lake, complete with icebergs!

Hiking 10 miles is not something that our family typically does, and as you can imagine, our kids are not usually overly excited to head out on a hike this long.  However, this turned out to be one of our favorite hikes of the park!
