Photographer's Note

The Iceberg Lake Trail in Glacier National Park is one of the “crown jewel” hiking trails in the park. To put it quite simply, the Iceberg Lake Trail offers one of the most scenic hikes you can find. And to top if off, the trail has to be one of the best designed hiking trails in Glacier National Park. While the Iceberg Lake Trail has a vertical elevation gain of 1200 feet, the trail has been designed to gain this vertical rise very gradually – almost imperceptibly – in most places. As such, hikers in even fair condition should be able to easily make the 4.5 mile hike up to Iceberg Lake.

And, if that wasn’t enough, the Iceberg Lake Trail provides some of the finest wildlife viewing opportunities in Glacier National Park. The trail passes through A+ terrain for grizzly bears. If you are in search of seeing grizzly bears, this trail is a very good one to use to find them. Other wildlife commonly seen on or around the Iceberg Lake Trail are bighorn sheep, mountain grouse, ground squirrels and the occasional mountain goat.
