Beautiful lake and a clear path. Pack an extra pair of lungs. But it’s worth it!

No service at trailhead (or any after you pass little bitterroot lake) so preload map if you need. Lots of mosquitos. Within the first .2-.3 miles there is a big cliff so keep dogs and kids close until you pass. Lots of people fishing at lake. Some mountain bikers. Campsite at south end of lake. Moderately trafficked this Fourth of July weekend.

Beautiful views on both sides of the lake! Worth the steep climbs, little mud and bugs! Some very steep climbs, but manageable even with a 6 year old. There was also some muddy spots and shallow water running on the path for a little portion. Bugs were not too bad, but it depends on what you are used to. We’re from WI and mosquitoes are terrible in the summer.

Great hike for a beautiful lake and Mountain Views. First half was uphill and tough but then it flattened out and doesn’t take long to get to the lake.

No sign on the highway. Lots of mosquitoes so bring spray. Not much room on the lake to sit. Not very busy. Did hole in wall too but only one little place to sit. Had the balance beam to walk. Pretty hike with cliffs.

Probably a five star trail but too steep for this old guy. Made it a quarter of the way when knee started acting up. Very nice trail but not for beginners like me. The drive up is worth it, then relax by the stream at the trailhead. So if you have hikers going on and have someone who cannot make it, the stream can occupy you for hours. Relax and enjoy

This was a fun trail with our 7 year old. The trail to Glacier lake is well established and the perfect length for kids. We had a great time and look forward to returning and hiking in further to the other lakes.

Fun trail. Lots of people at the lake. Kids where jumping off the cliff into the lake. Oh to be youthful again

Great trail true to the description. Beautiful views throughout with breaks through the tree line overlooking the valley. We started early and beat the crowds that we encountered on the way down. At 8 am the parking lot already had 4 cars and after ending, 1pm, was overflowing with little additional room for more cars. The incline is steep for the first two miles then levels off until you make the final turn with amazing views of Strawberry Mountain overlooking the lake. Quite a few areas to sit around the lake to have lunch before heading down. The trail continues to the north but does not circle the lake. This trail continues up the mountain at a steep incline, narrows, and is pretty overgrown. Our GPS logged 5.85 miles total, with just below 2.9 miles logged from the trail head to the lake, measuring 1,856 total elevation change.

Nice quick trail. Very crowded. Lots of dogs on leashes. Trail is well maintained. Felt like we spent half our time pulling over for other hikers going the opposite direction. Definitely a must do in the area but probably won’t repeat because of the crowds. FYI we went at 11am on a Tuesday and the parking lot was completely full

pretty easy hike to an absolutely beautiful lake, great for a picnic and a quick swim at the top!

Stunning! There were all sorts of wildflowers, and the view of the lake coming around the last turn was breathtaking. Cold at the top.

So fun!

Beautiful lake. Little muddy and overgrown in a couple places but overall really nice. Definitely bring bear spray! Will try it again when it’s not raining. Most of the climb is in the first 3/4 of a mile, so that part will get your blood pumping a little. Road to trailhead is excellent

Super fun hike, easy with lots of kids and puppies. Really enjoyed it. Bring mosquito repellent.

The trail was exceptionally maintained & easy to follow. Walking through a small running stream comprised some of the route. Mosquitos galore, bring insect repellent.

Gorgeous views! Lots of switchbacks with elevation gain. People were riding dirt bikes on the narrow trail which was disappointing, there’s a sign posted that says State Land and no motorized vehicles.

Great hike. Pretty easy well kept. 3-4 steeper scrambles--kids (9, 11, 12) handled easily. Amazing lake view at end = great payoff for little time (90 minutes roundtrip). Bring bug n bear spray. Didn't see any wildlife however.
