Just beautiful. Well worth the hike.

Great hike!!!! past reviews helped big time to find the falls. once you get to the dead end it’s only .5 miles to falls but it’s a climb down and a climb back up ,totally worth though . lots of people while we were there . parking is very tight

This trail is very, very dangerous. If you are on the trail in Rog’s pictures (below), you might consider turning around and finding the easier trail a bit further down. We got pretty banged up and were told by a girl that her mom was life-flighted out due to sliding all the way down.

Under current driving conditions (9/22/18) I would say you absolutely must have a high clearance vehicle or you’re going to get stuck.

There are also people shooting guns and drinking most of the way down. Just a heads up.

The waterfall is magical and totally worth visiting.

Beautiful! We did not go all the way down to bottom of falls, but was pretty where ever you chose to go.. lots of warnings about falling to your death tho.. which puts you on alert!

As a 69-year-old flatlander on my second day, I went only from Logan Pass to the Haystack- Mt Gould gap and return (Sep 3). Skies were mostly cloudy and there was smoke in the valleys. Even with that, this stretch is very scenic and fun. The cliff portions are wide and not scary. I intended to climb Haystack Butte, but lacked the energy and the trail did not look official or maintained.

Love it.

Hiked today and saw several areas at the beginning of the trail with scat and some bear tracks around the horse loop. Took almost 2.5 hours to get to the lake and a little under 2.5 on the way back down (average hikers). We saw two moose along the way and a deer. We didn’t see any bears until we were pulling out of the many glacier hotel parking area... on the cliff side .. saw several more up on the mountain on the drive out as well as one on the side of the road about .5 miles from the many glacier exit. Carry bear spray and be aware. In regards to the lake, it’s the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen. Weather is temperamental on this side so be prepared for wind, rain, and shine. Bugs were not bad. 9/20.

Hiked yesterday and it was gorgeous. Started around 10am and hardly anyone else on the trail. It was cloudy/misty out which helped because didn’t have to worry about sun. The Lake didn’t have any icebergs but large snow/ice pack surrounding that looked like a glacier. Very quit and peaceful at the lake. Took a detour and hiked to lake Ptarmigan made it about 13 miles total. Saw 3 grizzlies, 1 mom and 2 cubs on the hill near the end of the hike going back to the parking lot. The only downside is the drive to get to the trailhead- it was 2.5 hours in the car from The west entrance of the park. Totally worth it.

My favorite... can't forget the fact that I was all alone in the wilderness for nearly 4 hrs with no human being in sight in Grizzly country. Amazing views , beautiful glacier falls ... Siyeh hike is an out of this world experience.

Love it... absolutely love it. Don't miss the strenuous hike to the top of Grinell glacier, that's the icing on the cake.

Excellent hike with amazing views

Anazing hike! So many diverse environments. 4:45 of hiking steady, 5.5 hrs total.

Definitely moderate trail. But I would totally recommend hitting the moose pond as a bonus. We saw 3 moose on our journey and it was a spectacular falls at the end! Worth the steep grade up and very quick hike out going down hill.

Iceberg lake is a fantastic way to see glaciers up close without much strain or challenge. The moderate difficulty rating is likely attributed due to exposure and distance, not incline. Expect a more leisurely hike compared to what other GNP trails (Highline, Grinnell) provide, but the difficulty to payoff ratio here is outstanding.

If you are a novice hiker, this is a great trail to calibrate your skills with GNP. Highly recommend doing this first as it will help you gauge your skills with some other trails.

There is a good amount of exposure throughout the hike, so be prepared for sun and rain depending on the forecast. Inclined in general are gradual with the exception of a quarter mile stretch early in the trail.

Fantastic trail, with breathtaking vistas, trail challenging enough to be exciting. Love it

Fantastic hike with one amazing waterfall after another!

Exquisite and idyllic!

Cracker Lake trail is very different from many trails in East Glacier. The first half of the hike in is mostly forested, many switchbacks and few great views. But the last half is gorgeous. The Valley seems to continue to unfold as you get closer to the lake. Very scenic valley and nice place to camp out or picnic.

This was an easy hike with gorgeous waterfalls. It can get crowded, especially at the falls that are less than a mile from the trailhead, but the farther away from the trailhead I got the less people I saw.

Solid hike. Would consider other options given the crowd on this one

Moderate incline the entire way, but nothing to shy away from. Horses had the first mile torn pretty good. Beauty of a hike with less of a crowd

One of my favorite hikes that I went to. Absolutely beautiful! The unpaved road definitely makes it hard to walk so hiking shoes are recommended (I used running shoes and almost slipped few times). However, the scenery is breathtaking!!!! I got to observe the nature in the most vivid ways— got to see the wildlife (bees, spiders, garden snakes, etc...).

Abiqua is a hard hike but it totally worths the time and energy !!! My friends and I felt accomplished !

FREAKING GORGEOUS!! Getting there can be tricky so definitely read the previous comments made by others. I got there and had such an amazing time thanks to the tips and comments I read on here. The unpaved road constituted half of the hike literally but once you’re at the trailhead, the hike itself is less than 2 mi. Steep hills but the ropes and fallen trees along the way made it a tad easier. The waterfall made it up for all of the hard work. A MUST SEEN! This is by far the hardest but it is also my favorite hike! Super peaceful and calm :) I’m definitely coming back

The lake itself is beautiful! The first couple miles are highly covered in horse poop, which is a little frustrating. Once you get past that part it’s much better. The views of the lake are incredible. It’s worth going to if you don’t mind the horses and horse poop!

Did the Iceburg Lake Trail today and it was amazing. The trail is long, but easy, and has beautiful scenery all along the way. A Park Volunteer along the trail mentioned there hasn’t been any bears along the trail for the past couple of years because of the effect the hot and dry summers has had on the huckleberry bushes. We did see a Grizzly and her two cubs from the road on our way out of the park

Hiked this trail on Sunday 9/9/18. Started about 2:00 pm and went counter clockwise. Clocked over 9 miles and 1400 feet of elevation gain. The falls are amazing, though a few were dry. Not as many people in the afternoon and going that direction. Make sure you have your Trail app on because some of the trail has no signage. Very well maintained hike with a push toward the end up switchback stairs. Will be back in spring when the water is higher!

Finding the trail head was a challenge. Spent about half an hour just trying to figure out where to start. Recommend having screen shots of directions as no cell service. My Subaru couldn’t make it all the way down so I hiked about 3 extra miles, GPS put me at about 5 round trip. It felt like a ton of work for the payoff but I’m giving 4 stars due to the lack of people (I went on a weekday).
Also, I wouldn’t recommend doing this with a dog unless they are very agile. I had to carry my 60lb pit bull up a steep hill because she was struggling.

Easy amazing waterfall !!

It's nice, I've done with along with amphitheater and delta lake. But if you feel that's too much, skip this part and only do the lakes!!! They are much nicer

Better than doing the full lake, but you can take a ferry there and do the canyon instead.
