Great trail that isn’t too long or too taxing. But it’s definitely longer than listed. Be prepared for about 4 miles there and back if you want to see Virginia Falls from the furthest viewing location. Lots of deer were on the trail, very tame.

Stood on an iceberg!

Great scenery throughout this hike. We did the ptarmigan tunnel trail in the morning and did this one in the afternoon from the split off. Nice way to do it as it was busy going up to the lake with everybody leaving, but very quiet at the lake itself as everybody had mostly left already. Great lake to jump in if you can take it (still not as cold as grinnell glacier lake!) with Crystal clear water and amazing icebergs to stand on and jump off! Great experience all round for the whole family.

As everyone has said, the first two miles are hiked along a fairly narrow ridge with some challenging terrain. Afterwards the trail becomes well groomed for easy cruising. The dense

Absolutely stunning hike with a Great Lake at the end to take a dip. Only downsides were the bear sightings that caused the trail to become closed and a little too many people for my liking.

Very beautiful views around the top loop and is a decent place to stop if you have kids for lunch. I didn't see any large animals but did notice deer and bear scat. The left trail entrance has more sun exposure than the right trailhead entrance so if you are going in the heat of the day the right side would be better. It's a steady incline all the way up and steady decline down. It's safe for kids; no drop offs and my 4 year old did it with ease. There's no bathrooms but a portable restroom at trailhead.

Spectacular! Was there about a week ago. Many hikers jumping off of the bridge below St. Mary Falls. Hike it to the end for the Virginia waterfall. It’s worth it.

Nice hike
Lots of bees near the water on the west side of the trail

Very pretty. Nice and easy. Lots of people though!

First time hiking here and loved It! Great maintained trail, perfect for the dog. The beginning is all uphill then will decline downhill to a meadow full of butterflies. I hiked this August 4th and got an early start. Plenty of shade and places along the creek to hang your hammock. About 4 or so miles in the trail gets muddy and trail is covered in water. Didn't see any wildlife, but the Wasps and hornets are bad. It was challenging to rest without them swarming us. I loved this hike and look forward to going back.

Hiked this trail on 08/09 and it was on day 2 of being open after being closed due to bear activity. It was a beautiful hike up to the lake but keep in mind that on a sunny day, it can be kind of brutal because there is very little shade along the way. On our return, we ran into a pretty decent sized Grizzly right off the side of the trail so make sure to bring bear spray & make some noise! Worth it!

Fantastic views, babbling brooks, a powerful waterfall and Iceberg Lake is worth the trip. From the look of tracks in the snow around the lake, the wildlife loves to play in this spot, too.

Popular out-and-back to two fantastic waterfalls. On the harder side of easy due to length and elevation gain. Don't underestimate the climb back up to the Sun Road. Also, very little shade due to recent forest fires: dress accordingly and bring water. Trailhead parking will be nearly impossible, so you will need to ride the free park shuttle from the St. Mary's Visitor Center.

Very pleasant morning stroll. Also in a calm safe area. No overnight camping at the trailhead however spacious.

This was actually longer than stated (about 12 at least). Some nice ridge walking in the early part of walk. We were disappointed that there was no noticeable summit. Early August walk included lots of wasps/yellow jackets. Trail was quiet and easy to navigate. We would consider it a moderately difficult trail.

Gorgeous! We took the 2 year old in a backpack, but the other kids (4-9) were exhausted by the end but did it! Virginia Falls are worth finishing the hike for.

very beautiful hike from start to the top - highly recommended - expect to have a lot of bites by aggressive flies - longsleeve clothing can help.

Spectacular! Long but relatively easy after the first little bit. Saw several grizzly bears along the way.

Great little loop trail with some nice views at the top. Was great for a quick morning hike, definitely would do this trail again.

Great hike. Nice views along the way. Iceberg lake itself is overhyped, but everything else made it worth it.

Aug 1 - Awesome lake. Better view if you rest on the top of the boulder field and look back down. The floating glacier is hard enough that you can jump over. The Blouder field is the most confusing part as there aren't much markings around. Only way you know it's the path is the smaller gravel and flatter rocks.

amazing views! took the shortcut 3/4 the way to the top and ended about 3.5 miles round trip. a little dusty on the way back and exposed, but majority of the hike is covered pines and other foliage.

Did this on Aug 2 and had the trail to myself. Very quiet and peaceful. Trail was in good shape . It hasnt rained in weeks so no problem in crossing creeks. First 0.9 is uphill and peaks at a bench. Then down to the creek. Meadow and campsites were at 1.8 mi. I turned around at 3 mi where there is a junction sign. Both trails from there appeared unmaintained and overgrown. Overall a nice hike in mostly forest and some meadow.

When Siri says you’ve arrived at the TH take the right fork off of 202. Potholes and ruts but doable in a car if you take it slow.

Simple hike to an epic spot! Cliff jumps all day long.

This trail was alright. It was definitely moderate, not easy. There’s nowhere to park yourself near the trailhead, and taking the shuttle was a DISASTER. We waited forever and had to stand the whole way back to Logan’s Pass. The hike is pretty in some spots, no shade or anything because the trees are burnt. The two main waterfalls are HUGE they’re not the little ones you’ll pass. You’ll see 4 waterfalls, but the first and last are the main attraction. There’s other hikes I might go for before this one.

Started at Sun Point, like another mentioned, because trying to get parking at any of the other trail heads was impossible. So this added about a mile onto the trail, well worth it, great views. All three falls are pretty, Baring, St Mary, and Virginia. Well worth the trip!

Start Early! This is a great hike but much of it is exposed so it would be very hot to be walking uphill into the sun. I have hiked this twice on hot days but it was fine if you start around 9 am. The falls are a nice half way point and the flowers and icebergs are awesome.

Great little hike to do with the family and your fur babies! Love this trail and the views but the parking lot is tiny. So get there early

Did this hike on 7/25. My boyfriend and I drove to Many Glacier to look around and on our drive decided to do this hike last minute. SUPER glad we did because it was amazing. As other reviews say it was definitely hard in the beginning. I have arthritis and asthma so it was pretty challenging for me but if I can do it, lots of others can too. It's a little longer of a hike than I usually do but it was fun, challenging, and the view at the end is worth it.
Theres a lake that has no icebergs before the actual Iceberg lake so don't be fooled, thats not it, keep going. The lake with no icebergs in it is super clear and blue. There is a small cliff with and easy ledge to get out of the lake. If we had our swimsuits we would have jumped in.
There was also a female and male moose near the top that made it extra special.

If you can handle 6 degree Celsius water, then pack your swim gear.
