A short but steep hike that isn’t very travelled. We saw two other couples on our hike, and we had the waterfall all to ourselves. Definitely worth it!

this was one of my favorite trails!

A nice pretty easy hike. unfortunately it was very smokey from all the wildfires in the area while we I was there but still beautiful! came 20ft apart with a black bear but made it by with no incidents

loved this hike! the views were amazing and we got to see a moose ☺️. it is quite the hike but it was well worth the views!

most beautiful trail i have ever done!! it is long and gorgeous the entire way. you hike along the hill side, and end up at a warming house! it hailed and snowed on our hike, but id do it again in a heart beat! it was so fun. check the shuttle time at end of trail, so you don't have to walk miles back to parking lot!

The road leading to the trailhead was closed off, added an extra mile both ways. Great hike! The falls were beautiful.

Love doing this one when I visit Bozeman. Fun times hanging out by Lava lake!

Easy hike! beautiful view at the end and a fun place to swim or cool off. Young or old this is a good hike for everyone.

Hiked this on 1/5/2018. 46 degrees. Trail was in great shape for January. Campground is closed that trailhead is located in. Have to park at the gate on the other side of the Stillwater River bridge and walk over. Take a left when you get to the campground and follow the road up to the trailhead.

Freaking beautiful- past the overlook

This hike was our first one in Glacier! It was busy but we were there over the 4th of July. Go early regardless during the busy season so parking isn’t an issue. Literally saw people yelling at each other in the parking lot for spots. The snow was still on the mountain on our way up and pretty entertaining as some folks had flip flops on attempting the trek. So wear tennis shoes! Once you get to the overlook YOU GOTTA KEEP GOING! The way down to the lake was beautiful and then once you get there it takes your breath away. Picture perfect views and a fun spot to spend time taking it all in. There had been “grizzly activity” the day before but we didn’t see any ( wheh) but we saw a few sheep, goats, chipmunks and what I think is a marmot!! Way back up is strenuous but doable if you walk or hike often.

Gorgeous lake. Nice hike.

Saw rams, mountain goats and moose along the way. No bears though! The glacier is slowly shrinking but still beautiful!

A lovely hike on a bluebird day today January 2. Path is solid underfoot with 12 to 18 inches of snow on both sides. Waterfalls are frozen on top but river is flowing under ice so take care if you tread on the ice. Some amazing lads ice climbing the waterfalls made for super photos. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Gorgeous challenging trail- be prepared for a screen scramble at the end, with 360 degree views

Great trail did it with my kids and we had a great time. Beautiful views and amazing waterfall at the end.

An easy short hike. Went on Christmas and was not disappointed by the the giant frozen waterfall.

The most constant stunning views of any hike I have ever completed. Hiked in August 2017 so the park was filled with smoke from the fires, but this hike offered stunning views along the ridge. Also offered a bit of adrenaline walking along a ridge with a drop that would not be very survivable. Overall would highly recommend and will surely hike again.

Hiked August 2017 and still remains one of my favorites Ive done. Trail itself is not to challenging until you reach the switchbacks that lead to the tunnel. Lots of wildlife along the way and at the lake. We saw mountain goats, sheep, and a golden eagle dive in for a kill all in a span of an hour.

Hiked this last August while most of the park was closed from fire damage and smoke. Great reward at the end and saw 3 moose along the way, including a 22 point bull that walked across the trail about 25 feet in front of us.

One of the best hikes in the country!!!!

My favorite hike of all time. Cannot begin to describe the views. If you go to GNP in July or August, there's a good chance the trail will be open as it depends on how much snow needs to be cleared. If you time it right, you can do some of the hike with a ranger, who will fill you in on details about the park you may not otherwise know. It is very steep, with a few dangerous drop offs, but there is a handrail when the trail narrows. If you have the time, you can hike to one of the chalets. Keep your eyes out for the garden wall, so beautiful.

Amazing views of the lake, with peaks above you and waterfalls galore.. Very crowded with people in the summer months. Went with a group, which is recommended as to not have to try and figure out the bear spray.

Great trail, hiked it on Christmas day and the snow was hard packed making an easy hike, the waterfalls were frozen and beutiful.

A nice trail, not terribly hard but will be very busy during the summer months. Plan to get an early start if you want a quiet trail because it’s popular with families

Hiked September 2017. While smoke obscured our views, this was a great first hike in Glacier NP.

Hiked September 2017. Beautiful location. We took the boat across the first lake and then hiked to the second for a quick lunch. We think we heard elk bugling but didn’t spot them.

Hiked September 2017. This hike was a wildlife bonanza for us - bighorn sheep, 2 moose including a baby and 2 grizzly bears (at a very comfortable distance). The views down the valley were spectacular too!

Nice get away trail in the summer time. It's all about timing. Got to enjoy the lake with very a little amount of people.
